startLoad method

startLoad method

I am using the preloader from the article
?[ http://www.yqcomputer.com/ 's
working fine. What I can't figure out is how to make it load additional content.

There is an extract from the article:

"Loading Additional Content

If you want to reuse this preloader to load additional content once the user
is in the site, all you have to do is make sure the preloader movie clip, or
another preloader clip also registered to the Preloader class, is on the
Timeline, and call the startLoad method with the parameter being the movie clip
that the new movie will be loaded into."


If the parameter is the movie clip that the new movie will be loaded into,
where do I put the name of the movie clip being loaded?

This doesn't work: startPreload("new_mc.swf", "container");

I have the preloader_mc on the timeline.

What am I doing wrong?
