I have recently purchased a complete template flash movie. Here is a summary of what it does:

1) Loads movie with progress bar
2) Once loaded it fires all of the embedded symbol instances, movies etc...
3) Works great, but the image slide show requires a Button Click on the thumbs to progress to the next slide.

When I examined the button event, the following is executed:

onClipEvent (load) {
num = 1;

There are 6 images in total. Obviously "num" is a variable for each Slide ID.

What I would like to do is implement some code that will enable the next slide to be triggered after a set amount of time.

When I try and paste the above code directly onto one of the frames and test the movie, I get the following:

Clip events are permitted only for movie clip instances

OK, so I am a little out of my depth here, but I am definitely starting to get my head around actionscript.

I am sure this is a common method that I am searching for, so I am hoping somebody knows what I am trying to do, and may be able to start pointing me in the right direction.

(*Please note, I have a total of about 20 hours flash experience)
