First, the if statement tests to see that the variable loadpercent is at 100, which would mean it is fully loaded.
It says if the variable doesn't equal 100, then use the
These are the parameters of the setProperty(); funtion:
setProperty(target, property, value);
First, target. This tells the function what clip to target, and assign the follow property to. Next, property. This is the property of the specific clip to set. In this case, _xscale. And Last, value. This is the value of the property being assigned. In this case, it was loadpercent.
Now, if the if statement returns true, then the setProperty(); function is used to show how much of the movie is loaded through a bar movieclip. If the statement returns false, and the movie is...
And this stops the movie on the frame (because the movie is completely loaded).
This about sums it up! Basically, using actionscript, we test to see if the movie is loaded, and change the size of the bar if it isn't, and go to the nextframe if it is!
