I hope that "iTunes for Windows" will become more wide-spread, since it 
comes with he latest
version of QT -> 6.4 :-)

No way...

But you could workaround by creating several groups with the 
appropriate "noop" buttons it
and show/hide them as needed...

A clever naming will really help in that case :-)

Like setting the group's name to the filename of the correspondig image,
then you could script something like:

hide grp (the filename of img "my_pp_sildes")
set the filename of img "my_pp_sildes" to (next/prev/last/first 
show grp (the filename of img "my_pp_sildes")

You get the picture... ;-)
