View Full Version : better preloading?

02-28-2003, 04:07 PM
I'm familiar with basic javascript preloading of images, for such things are roll-over effects. Can someone suggest to me a method where i could load all of my graphics for a page before beginning any other function or displaying anything?

well.. i'm flexible, but i have timed image filter effects that look pretty messed if they arent fully loaded when they're displayed.

Would you consider using an intermediary page to load them all? I did a slideshow for a client once with a decent number of large images, and they wanted them all preloaded BEFORE getting to the page that used them. It's an IE-only slideshow, but you can see it here (http://www.ccsb.com/art.htm).

I used this script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/preloadimage.htm) from Dynamic Drive, if I remember correctly ;)
