Hey Sascha, I see what you mean - the main problem is you have no way of knowing the sum total of all the bytes to load when the download process starts. I like the idea of dividing the bar into segments, one per image. I think I'd try something like this: Lets say there are 5 images to load -

This is a bit of a mess and it is a little old (you could write it better), but it works to do what you are asking. It also requires that you know the bytes of each file before you load. The way I handled this is to run the swf once and trace out the bytes and then put them into the bytes array.

thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case because the images are loaded sequencially. If one image is finished loading, my class starts loading the next and so on, one after one. And the amount of images varies (the image filenames are fetched from a XML file). put the

The point of AS2 is: - packages - strong typing If you are not taking advantage of the first, that is ok. AS1 prototype's are created in the _global scope, so the 2 can co-exist. However, AS1 does not use strong typing; basically everything is uncast so tracking down bugs will be easier in

You cannot lose using onLoad. Even if a component takes 1 frame to initialize because you are dragging it to the stage instead of creating dynamically, onLoad will always fire at the correct time. However, you outta abstract this to an event. As you know, mx.core.View physically calls

Instead of showing the progression of how many bytes loaded, you should just show how many images are loaded. So if you have 13 images loading, each time a image is loaded, increment the progress bar 7.69 percent: var nPercent:Number = (numberOfImagesLoaded / totalNumberOfImages)*100; Cheers,
