How should the preloader work?

We are going to create a runtime shared resource that we can link to from our other Flash MX movies. Movie reusability in Flash? You betcha!

This is a SWF file that has a loader movie resource containing load animations, a progress bar, and some custom smarts allowing us to quickly work out how our preload is going.

On this side we have the SWF files that require a loader. We will be dragging and dropping our loader from our resource library on to the frames where we want the loader to appear. We will then add some load and enterFrame clip event code to finish them off when we use them.
