I'm developing a stand-alone flash presentation. I'm using a flip-book component to dynamically load pages into my flash presentation. Each time I load a book, I call an external XML to populate the component. On selection of a book from a drop-down list, this is the code that I execute.
initObj = new Object();
initObj.extXML = xmlName ;
initObj._x = 0;
initObj._y = 0;
glbMC=mcFbDummy.attachMovie("FFlippingBookSymbol", "myBook", mcFbDummy.getNextHighestDepth(), initObj);
I've unchecked the 'import in first frame' and added an instance of the component in frame 1. The flip-book is loading well. But there are some books with close to 1000 pages. The page info is contained in the external xml file. How do I get the loadProgress of this external XML. This info will help me to develop a preloader. Many thanks for your help.
