Ok so I am doing this huge slide presentation in flash MX2004 and I need to display the slide numbers in a box on the bottom of the screen, I would od this manually but there are 249 slides. What I would like to do is have a dynamic textbox on the parent slide so that it loads on to every slide and then have an action script on each child slide that is like slidenum = slidenum+1 so it basically looks at the first slide and says this is slide 1, then on slide 2 it takes the variable from slide 1 and adds 1 to it to make it 2 and then on slide 3 it adds a 1 to the 2. Also I don't want this to start from the actual first slide. I have a cover slide and a load slide which I would like to not have a slide number on. Anyone know how to do this?
