Need to know how I can get the Flash intro to wait until the rest of the site loads. Right now, if you visit the site from any other site, the Flash movie shows on top of the previous site until the graphics for the actual web page loads.

Much thanks, I am sure this is SIMPLE, just couldn't find it in Macromedia help. http://www.louisville.edu/org/sfn

sample flash embed code:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" name="sample" width="200" height="200" align=""
<param name=movie value="sample.swf">
<param name=menu value=false>
<param name=quality value=high>
<param name=scale value=noscale>
<embed src="sample.swf" menu=false quality=high scale=noscale wmode=transparent bgcolor=#FFFFFF width="208" height="160" swliveconnect=true id="sample" name="sample" align=""
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>

Note that there is a few changes, NAME and ID are both set on the object and the embed.

Embed has swliveconnect=true

now atleast in thery you can add this to your <body> tag

window.document.sample.SetVariable("loaded", "done");

Then simply test the loaded
There may be other problems with this but its a start.

It seems thay did this annother way as well, more then likely not as intentional.

It looks like thay might be makeing use of Dreamweaves preload images.
