Using Keydown Scripts

Using Keydown Scripts

I can't seem to create a keydown script that will work. Even if I do a cut and paste from the help menu and get the syntax correct, it still has no effect on the movie. I realize that I need to run it as a movie script so that it effect the whole movie, but still no luck. All I want to do is use key strokes (such as the arrow keys) to controll the playback head. Can anyone help?!?!?!?!

RE: Using Keydown Scripts

in your startmovie script set the keydown script to a custom handler containing your code. eg
on startmovie
set the keydownscript to "handler"

on handler
if the keycode = X
go to frame Y
end if
