A Real Loading Bar for Embbed Objects?

P: n/a
I wanted a progress bar for my webpage, where I have numerous embedded
sounds. Can Javascript detect which ones are done and possibly how
much is loaded for each object? I searched for JS progress bars, but
all I found were fake ones. Can anybody help me? Thanks

javascript has no way of knowing if 1% or 99% of a file has loaded. Only that
it has or has not loaded completely. That is why you are only finding fake ones
- authentic ones dont exist.

You do not want to steal your visitors more of their computing
time as you already do since all UAs have a progress bar or a
similar feature like a percent display built-in.
