Help needed!!! Please ..

I have 16 movies now, and I am trying to use the F1 and F2 buttons to change movie files.
(ex. I am showing video #6, if I click F2 then video#7 will come up/ if I click F1 then video #5 will come up..)
How can I do this..???

Another way plus you can press f1 like a zillion times without negative values!


(F1/F2 is working here (winxp), maybe mac is different (although that would make the “s” in ascii quite obsolete)

Thank you for your help too. I think it is about the F1 and F2 key now.. do you know how I could connect F1 & F2 keys for Mac?

Just hook up a number-box to the key-object and check wether the values displayed match those set in the sel-object. If they are matching something else is going on, if not change the values of sel to those coming out of key.
