Simple ?, how can i do this

what i want to do is, or raather what i want to learn is, the way that he has alot of buttons and once the user clicks ANY of em, they all go through all the non pressed buttons/items until the one the user clicked on shows. for example, if there are 10 buttons on stage , the current item being viewed is 3,and the user clicks say button 10, then the animation goes from 1 THROUGH ALL the items and then displays 10. once the button is pressed, it doesnt just JUMP to the section.

then say if from 10 then 7 is pressed, it goes backwards through th items until 7 its displayed.

how can i achieve this?

thanks in advance
