you can use:
Thank you very much for your reply. I copied and pasted the code but i'm still having problems with it. When I test movie the images keep flickering past without me pressing anything and nothing seems to happen when I click the thumbs or arrows. Also, an error shows up:
*Error*:Scene1,Layer 'actions',Frame1,Line3:1120: Access of undefined property next_btn. next_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,nextF);
What should I do? I appreciate your help.
or, why don't you add a next_btn to the frame that contains that code and use the code i suggested?
I think that first dot after next_btn is a period to end a sentence.
when that code executes, you need a button named next_btn and one named prev_btn.
ok i know i sound daft right now but i'm not too sure what you mean. When i converted the arrows to symbols i made them buttons and named them next_btn and prev_btn. I also included that in the code. What am i missing?? Just to clarify, I want the thumbnail panel to have the next and previous buttons.
