I have a Flash (I'm using Flash Professional 8) file and basically what I want to do it pause or stop it (I can get it stopped using the stop(); command, but can't resume it...).  Then, have the file resume the next frame on a mouse click or by the press of a keyboard.

And, can I do this without buttons?  If not, any way would be helpful.  Thanks in advance!

is this the main flash movie or a clip in the movie?

and yes you can do it without buttons.. how have you been trying to start it playing?

This is the main flash movie.

I just had a stop(); on one frame and a play(); on another... I've tried goToAndStop();, but I can't really get it.  I'm not really a flash guru, so I am probably overlooking something obvious...

make an empty movieclip.. go..insert/symbol.. name it empty clip

find it in the library.. drag it to a position off the side of the stage..

with it selected put the following code on it..

onClipEvent(keyDown){
    if(Key.getCode() == 32){ //space bar
    trace("stop");
     _parent.stop();
               }
}
onClipEvent(keyDown){
      if(Key.getCode() == 39){  //arrow right
            trace("go");
            _parent.play();
            }
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
