Actionscript: frame 1, next Slide function

We now create a function to go manually through the slides.

//function to go to the next slide.
//k is a global variable here and set to "0" so that first slide
//will be in fact the number for first slide. The number for the first slide
//can be different from 1.
var k = 0;
function nextSlide(firstSlide,lastSlide,slideName,slideText) {
	percentOutput = "";
	//k is incremented by 1 to set to value of next slide.
	k = k+1;
	//i is the actual slide number.
	i = (firstSlide - 1) + k;
    //function to load text, when html you can place links
    //var newText to load corresponding text into textbox.
    newText = (slideText + i + ".txt");
	loadVarsText = new loadVars();
	loadVarsText.onLoad = function(success) {
		if(success) {
			scroller.html = true;
			scroller.htmlText = this.myText;
			trace("not loaded");
	// if statements to hide next or previous button 
    // and to load the pics
	if (i == firstSlide) {
		_root.leftBut._visible = false;
		i = firstSlide;
 _root.slideHolder.loadMovie(slideName + i + ".jpg");
	if (i == lastSlide) {
	_root.rightBut._visible = false;
		i = lastSlide;
 _root.slideHolder.loadMovie(slideName + i + ".jpg");
	} else if (i !== firstSlide && i !== lastSlide) {
		_root.rightBut._visible = true;
		_root.leftBut._visible = true;
		i = (i+1) -firstSlide;
	 _root.slideHolder.loadMovie(slideName + i + ".jpg");

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
