Loading Loop

Because the script is on a separate timeline, you need to create a loop in your flash movie that waits for the script to finish. Here is the code that I used in the sample .fla to make the loop:
if (loading eq "YES") {
    gotoAndPlay (_currentframe-1);
} else {
    gotoAndStop (1);
When you click on the button that loads the script, the sample .fla also sets the 'loading' variable to 'YES'. The movie knows when the script is done because it tells the movie that 'loading=NO'.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
