want to show 3 pictures in frame each for certain time

want to be able to show each of 3 (0r more) pictures in a frame for variable time length then go back to beginning and start over. Need to have the routine stop if any key or mouse movement is detected. Please use timer in example and be specific as to what code is put in what area.

Try using the picture clip control.  It will let you insert multiple images and iterate through them.  Moderately simple to use, too.

I've seen it used for animation sequences...

In conjunction with the timer control.....

Like this sample code
--------------------------


Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Static i As Integer

    i = i + 1
    If i = 16 Then
        i = 0
    End If
    imgLens.Picture = PictureClip1.GraphicCell(i)
End Sub

What do you think the Timer1_Timer Event is used by?

This code is used to simulate the magnifying glass circling for "Find Files" in one of our programs....

We used the timer (Timer1) and an image control (imgLens) and the picture clip control with an array of 16 images (like cells in a movie) to be animated (PictureClip1)...

The code I posted is all that is needed (once you have your controls created and their properties set), for the animation effect that I believe you are talking about.

If this doesn't answer your question, please elucidate as to what effect exactly you are trying to achieve.
-------
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Static i As Integer

    i = i + 1
    If i = 16 Then
        i = 0
    End If
    imgLens.Picture = PictureClip1.GraphicCell(i)
End Sub
