Flash Slide Presentations: Make slide advance after x seconds

I have been messing with the new slide screens feature in 2004 MX Pro and I was wondering if there was a way to automatically advance slides, I couldnt figure out a way except with mouse clicks...

Thanks!

Sorry, I wasn't familiar with the slide code:

replace:

Slide.gotoNextSlide();

with:

_root.currentSlide.nextSlide();

also put the code onto a frame (i.e. the last frame, at the point where you want it to start timing) on the main timeline - not a button or movieclip as that is causing the error message.

You can use setInterval:

function advanceSlide = function() {
    clearInterval(_root.id);
    // code to advance to next slide
    Slide.gotoNextSlide();
}

_root.id = setInterval(advanceSlide,3000); // wait 3 seconds before calling advanceSlide

That threw an error, here is the output:

**Error** Screen=search:Line 10: '(' expected
     function advanceSlide = function() {

**Error** Screen=search:Line 16: Statement must appear within on/onClipEvent handler
     _root.id = setInterval(advanceSlide,3000); // wait 3 seconds before calling advanceSlide

Total ActionScript Errors: 2        Reported Errors: 2


Any ideas?

I had to do some checking but here is the final code that is needed to work:

on(reveal) {
advanceSlide = function ()
{
currentSlide.gotoNextSlide();
}
setInterval(advanceSlide, 5000)
}


Thanks.
