    Make my movie clip move from left to right with arrow buttons.

      Hi hope this is a quick one..

      I have all the elements set up already so just need the logistics of how i can acheive the following:

      I have an arrow at the furthest left and furthest right of my main flash movie. I then have a movie clip in the middle which has indidivual images on a kind of long strip. When i click the left arrow i want the movie to begin to move from the right to the left and visa versa. I have achieved this with the keyboard left and right keys so what i really need is to convert this theory for the left and right arrow buttons?

      var speed:Number = 4;
      object_mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
      if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {
      this._x = this._x+speed;
      } else if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)) {
      this._x = this._x-speed;
      }
      };


      Any help will be greatly appreciated??

      Thanks

      Ben
