View Full Version : Show logo/ad while content loads at back end

04-27-2012, 05:27 PM
I want to place a Logo/ad in front of content, there are ways to do it but the problem with them is that they use JS show/hide method. What happens is that the content doesn't load while user is watching the logo/ad, which results as double waiting for the user first for the logo/ad and then the actual flash content loading.
So I was thinking if there is a way that a logo/ad could be displayed and at the same time flash content continues to load at the back end.
*I didn't ask for a loader that continues to appear until at the back end flash content is done loading, because I found only one script that was able to do so using Jquery but it was designed to work with fixed pixels while my flash content is based on %ages*

Note: Sorry for providing blogspot link but JsFiddle is not an option for a person living in Afghanistan with 5KBps but still if you feel that I am missing something please let me know I will edit it and try my best to provide as relevant question as possible ^^

JS (actually Jquery)

&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot;&gt;

//When you click on a link with class of poplight and the href starts with a #
$('a.poplight[href^=#]').click(function() {
var popID = $(this).attr('rel'); //Get Popup Name
var popURL = $(this).attr('href'); //Get Popup href to define size

//Pull Query &amp; Variables from href URL
var query= popURL.split('?');
var dim= query[1].split('&amp;');
var popWidth = dim[0].split('=')[1]; //Gets the first query string value

//Fade in the Popup and add close button
$('#' + popID).fadeIn().css({ 'width': Number( popWidth ) }).prepend('&lt;a href=&quot;#&quot; title=&quot;Close It&quot; class=&quot;close&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://files.cryoffalcon.com/bloghuts/images/close%20button.png&quot; alt=&quot;Close&quot; width=&quot;20&quot; height=&quot;20&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;');

//Define margin for center alignment (vertical + horizontal) - we add 80 to the height/width to accomodate for the padding + border width defined in the css
var popMargTop = ($('#' + popID).height() + 0) / 0;
var popMargLeft = ($('#' + popID).width() + 0) / 0;

//Apply Margin to Popup
$('#' + popID).css({
'margin-top' : -popMargTop,
'margin-left' : -popMargLeft

//Fade in Background
$('body').append('&lt;div id=&quot;fade&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;'); //Add the fade layer to bottom of the body tag.
$('#fade').css({'filter' : 'alpha(opacity=80)'}).fadeIn(); //Fade in the fade layer

return false;

//Close Popups and Fade Layer
$('a.close, #fade').live('click', function() { //When clicking on the close or fade layer...
$('#fade , .popup_block').fadeOut(function() {
$('#fade, a.close').remove();
}); //fade them both out

return false;
