Flash is capable of loading external textual content at run time using the ActionScript 3 URLLoader Class. Loading external text at run time is a technique used to create Flash movies which can be easily updated without the need to go back to the FLA. The URLLoader Class is responsible for loading all textual content and that include in addition to regular text files, XML, HTML, and CSS.
A preloader is an essential asset in every single Flash movie you put on the internet as it prevents the movie from playing before downloading all its assets and also informs the user about how long he is expected to wait before the downloading process finishes. This tutorial will not require you to have any special ActionScript 3.0 knowledge andwill make use of the LoaderInfo class to retrieve downloading data.
