Preloader in Javascript

Hi all,

I want to add a spinning preloader to my website, I tried many javascript plugins but they have not worked or they were just dummy-preloaders (not really measuring if the images were loaded or not). My research has shown me that I may need to learn AJAX inorder to have a decent preloader. I will do that, but I need a solution sooner for the current project, any ideas?

This might help, if you can find the load spinner you want it's all about creating the event listener.
