The URLMultiLoader class in this library will load multiple files and optionally “process” them before calling the method specified for Event.COMPLETE. Since file loading in the Flash/Flex/AS3 world is completely asynchronous, when you need to load more than one file, the hackish solution is to make the COMPLETE handler for the first one initiate the load for the second, etc. until all the files are loaded. URLMultiLoader will allow you to setup one COMPLETE handler which will not be called until all the files you specify are loaded (and optionally “processed”).
For details on how to use it, see my blog post on it here.
