    Question SWF pause [or loop] until an external JPG is fully loaded... ?

    Hey ya'll, the best way to explain what I am looking for is to imagine it as like a powerpoint [its not but that's what I'm stuck on... anywho]... I have a ton of external JPGs that I'll need to load in one by one as needed into an empty clip [no problem there], what I'm stuck on is that I want the movie to pause [or loop] until the JPG is completely loaded. Once the image is loaded, then the movie resumes playing... for the life of me, I can't seem to figure it out. The play head keeps going then the JPG loads pops in eventually.

    Make sense?

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    You should look into MovieClipLoader()

    example of how it works
    PHP Code:
    PictureLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
    PictureListen = new Object();

    PictureLoader.onLoadStart = function()
    // image starts loading
        // stop movie
    PictureLoader.onLoadProgress = function()
    // image is loading
        // movie paused
    PictureLoader.onLoadComplete = function()
    // image is complete
        // movie paused
    PictureLoader.onLoadInit = function()
    // do commands
        // play movie
