Stupid Programming Question

Thanks for the suggestion... the script in question does both -- hides on
preOpenCard (as it's shown on openCard) then shows on openCard. I am
troubled by the fact that it seems to reference an image which does not
exist (Hint: c17.jpg -- no such animal as there are only 1 - 16 cx.jpg).
What I did was take Paul's script (the show below) and used hide in
preOpenCard and show in openCard.
Thanks for suggesting that I swap out "controls" with "images" -- this is
what I had tried before Paul pointed out my concatenation error and
omitted parenthesis. Will try again...
