Show logo/ad while content loads at back end

by cryoffalcon » Fri Apr 27, 2012 6:35 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 ^^

Relevant Markup:
Button for lightbox or Modal Window

Code: Select all
<a class="poplight" href="#?w=100%" rel="popup_name"><img alt="play game" class="happybutton" onmouseout="this.style.opacity=0.8;this.filters.alpha.opacity=80" onmouseover="this.style.opacity=1;this.filters.alpha.opacity=100" src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4084/4998558471_27e3985c16_m.jpg" style="opacity: 0.8;" /></a>

Code: Select all
  <div class="popup_block" id="popup_name">
     <script type="text/javascript">
        $('a.poplight[href^=#]').click(function() {
                .attr('frameborder', 0)
                .attr('allowTransparency', false)
                .attr('scrolling', 'no')
                .attr('width', '100%')
                .attr('height', '98%')
                .attr('src', 'http://files.cryoffalcon.com/bhgames/dressup/Celebrities/Wizard%20Fashion.html')


Code: Select all
#fade {
       display: none;
       background: #000;
       position: fixed; left: 0; top: 0;
       width: 100%; height: 100%;
       opacity: .80;
       z-index: 9999999;
       width: 98.95%; height: 98.2%;
       display: none;
       padding: 0px;
       font-size: 1em;

       border-radius: 10px;
    .close {
       float: right;
       margin: 0 2px 0 0;   

JS (actually Jquery)

Code: Select all
&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;
