Flash ActionScript when enter is pressed goto next scene

Hi,

How do I, in Macromedia Flash MX, add into the actions a script that will allow me to run a PowerPoint like presentation.

For example I have one scene that loops until I press enter, then it will go to the next scene.

Each scene will run on a loop until the enter key is pressed, then it will go to the next scene and so on...


Can anybody help me??

You will need to use the key object somehting like this:

_root.onEnterFrame = function()
{
  if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER))
  {
     gotoAndPlay("scene2","firstframe");
  }
}

Hope that's what you were after...

I don't want to have any buttons on the slideshow. Is their any way to add this to a entire layer? So when the enter key can be pressed at any time?

Koersty, the suggestion fro Xenophon doesn't require a button, place it on the first keyframe of your movie, you might might to add an else to keep it looping, so

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
      if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
            gotoAndPlay(6); // where you want to go when enter is pressed
      } else {
            gotoAndPlay(1);//loop while enter not pressed
      }
};
