jQuery Question

Detect if page has finished loading

Is there a way to detect when a page has finished loading ie all its content, javascript and assets like css and images?

so like:

if(PAGE HAS FINISHED LOADING)
{
// do something amazing
}


and also additionally if the page has been loading for more than 1 min then do something else such as:

if(PAGE HAS BEEN LOADING FOR 1 MIN)
{
// do something else amazing
}


I've seen websites like Apple's MobileMe do similar checks but haven't been able to figure it out in their huge code libraries.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

EDIT: This is essentially what I want to do:

// hide content
$("#hide").hide();
// hide loading
$("#loading").hide();
// fade in loading animation
setTimeout($('#loading').fadeIn(), 200);

jQuery(window).load(function () {
$("#hide").fadeIn();

$("#loading").fadeOut(function () {
$(this).remove();
clearInterval(loadingAnim);
});

setTimeout(function () {
$("#error").fadeIn();
},

60000);

});

Answer
jQuery(window).load(function () {
    alert('page is loaded');

    setTimeout(function () {
        alert('page is loaded and 1 minute has passed');   
    }, 60000);

});

See also http://api.jquery.com/load-event/ for an explanation on the jQuery(window).load.

Update

A detailed explanation on how javascript loading works and the two events DOMContentLoaded and OnLoad can be found on this page.

DOMContentLoaded: When the DOM is ready to be manipulated. jQuery's way of capturing this event is with jQuery(document).ready(function () {});.

OnLoad: When the DOM is ready and all assets - this includes images, iframe, fonts, etc - have been loaded and the spinning wheel / hour class disappear. jQuery's way of capturing this event is the above mentioned jQuery(window).load.
