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();
            }
}
