Progress bar in jQuery when loading background-image from script


I have a script that loads big images into the body in this fashion :

$('body').css("background-image", "url(pics/jpg/folio/" + TtempID + ".jpg)");

I'm looking for a progress bar script that would run everytime the background image is changed, without a single page reload.

I'm currenty using Twitter BootStrap in conjonction with jQuery.

Thanks in advance for any valuable piece of information.

Cheers :)


Something like this ?


function loadBackground(image) { $('body').addClass('loading'); var img = new Image(); img.onload = function() { $('body').css({ 'background-image': 'url(pics/jpg/folio/" + image + ".jpg)' }).removeClass('loading'); }; img.src = url; }


.loading:after{ content:' '; position:absolute; top:0; left:0; right:0; bottom:0; background:url('PATH-TO-LOADING-IMAGE') 50% 50% no-repeat; z-index:1000; background-color:rgba(0,0,0,0.3); }

Use it like

loadBackground( TtempID );
