Embedding Movies with Flash, Part III: More Properties

Finding the Movie's Loading Progress

The FRAMESLOADED property designates the number of frames already loaded on the page. You may get this property, but you cannot set it. The FRAMESLOADED property is no. 12, so you get its value by going:

  mySwf.TGetProperty(timeline, 12);

Play the following movie by clicking the Play link. Get the FRAMESLOADED of the movie by clicking the Get FRAMES LOADED link. On short movies, you will experience instant loading. On long movies or on poor connection lines, you should see a change in this parameter, until it hits the total length of the movie in frames:

Rewind | Play | Get FRAMES LOADED

Here is the source code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="flashcheck2.js">
</SCRIPT>
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 Rewind(); return false">Rewind</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 Play(); return false">Play</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:alert(mySwf2.
 TGetProperty('/', 12));
  return false">Get FRAMES LOADED</A>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  var mySwf2 = Flash_embedSWF("opener.swf", "opener");
</SCRIPT>
