Animated preloader in Flash

How would I make a preloader with a symbol that moves from left, rather than having a rectangle scaling? Or would it work the same? I don't want the symbol to warp at all when it's moving. I am using Actionscript 2.0, with Flash CS4

I don't know the specifics for flash, but you basically want to move the sprite's x value with the load progress, rather than resize a rectangle's x2 (bottom corner) value.

For make a simple preloader without any loading (Just picture or animation) you can use this code :

ifFrameLoaded (_totalframes) {
_root.gotoAndPlay (2);
}

But if you need a better and fuller preloader , I think this link will help you :
