View Full Version : pre-loading images

04-09-2007, 01:29 PM
does anybody know how to make my site preload the menu and header images before the whole site is displayed? i have made a menu with rollover effects (based on css, not java) and it takes some time with slower connection to load and display the next image if mouse cursor goes to a menu button, which makes the menu work not so smoothly. i'd like them to load up while my site is displaying its intro page so when a visitor is on my site, it works smoothly and doesnt take extra time to load images. how can i do that?
thanks in advance!

You could try something like this (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/preloadimage.htm)

thanks, will try:)
i wonder do i have to specify each image separately? or is there a way for it to automatically take all my site images and preload them?

also it requires activeX in IE:(
how can i make it without java or activex?
is it possible to do it with flash? like i have a flash intro and while its displaying the images are being loaded?
