    MX components

    Ive producted an application form using components from the flash MX panel which has a simple percentage preloader at the beginning and is around 150kb, but when I test movie with the bandwidth profiler on, It shows that it takes around 35k before the preloader even kicks in, now if I remove all flash components from my library and retest the preloader kicks in straight away.
    anyone now why is this?

    Thanks in advance.......

    because components and their related info load in in the first frame...before they are beeing used, no idea of how to solve that though....

    anyone...?

    Right, components are exported in the first frame along with fonts and anything else specified in the library...

    Either make the preloader a seperate movieclip or disable export in first frame (right-click the component in the library and go to linkage). Note that your component must be fully loaded before it is accessable on the stage and/or through actionscript.
