Preload problems!!
layers!?, images preload...

 12:09 pm on Mar 9, 2002 (gmt 0)

I wounder if there is anyone out there who can help me with my problem.

This is the situation, im running a website and it is all built with layers wich makes the index.html-file pretty large. My question is: Is it possible to preload layers?? for exampel on an intro page so the index file will open faster??

If the topic above is impossible, can someone help with a good image preloader that preloads all the images on the page before it opens!

Thanx on advance!

Not sure about the layers issue, but any free javascript site should have a lot of image preloading scripts available. (javascripts.com, javascriptcity.com, java-scripts.com, etc., etc... Search Google for '"free javascript" preload download')

Just make sure not to get a script that ONLY tests for Netscape/IE browsers by name, or you'll be leaving some of your alternative-browser users out in the cold...

Yes you can have an intro screen so that all the layers, images load.

Just create one big div the covers the entire screen with a message like "loading..." or whatever. Have an onload event for the big div so its the last thing to load. So onload -> hide big layer thus revealing content below.
