I am trying to link a slider bar to control a sequence of images I have in a movie clip. It is a 3d rotation of a TV.  I have created a slider with a line and dragger, I followed the tutorial from http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/slider.htm

Here is the code I have in frame 1 of the movie clip that is my slider:

this.ratio=0 ;
dragger.onPress=function(){
      this.startDrag(true,0,0,0,((line._height)-120));
      this.onEnterFrame=function(){
            ratio=Math.round(this._y*100/line._height) ;
      }
}
dragger.onRelease=dragger.onreleaseOutside=stopDrag;

And here is the code I have in frame 1 of the movie it appears in:

this.onEnterFrame=function(){
   ratio.text=mySlider.ratio;
}

My movie clip is called Images. The action script above the movie clip Images I got off a tutorial and looks like this.

Images.stop();

var startX:Number;
var startFrame:Number;
var changeDistance:Number;
var travelDistance:Number;

Images.onPress = pressHandler;
Images.onRelease = releaseHandler;
Images.onReleaseOutside = releaseHandler;

function pressHandler():Void {
  startX = Images._xmouse;
  startFrame = Images._currentframe;
  this.onMouseMove = moveHandler;
}
function releaseHandler():Void {
  this.onMouseMove = null;
}
function moveHandler():Void {
      changeDistance = Math.round((Images._xmouse-startX)/10);
      travelDistance = startFrame+changeDistance;
      if (travelDistance>Images._totalframes) {
            Images.gotoAndStop(travelDistance%Images._totalframes);
      } else if (travelDistance<0) {
            Images.gotoAndStop(Images._totalframes+(travelDistance%Images._totalframes));
      } else {
            Images.gotoAndStop(travelDistance);
      }
}
