Just started using beamer. I think its great. I was unable to find a beamer

1. When i create a block, how do i get the block contents to actually appear 
inside the block. So what i currently have is:

Block (ERT[{title}] body): [[ {some heading} ]]
block contents

where [[ and ]] indicate a red ERT box. There seems to be some way of 
letting lyx know that the contents belong inside the blue box that appears 
on the output (b/c i see it done in the examples) but i cant figure it out


Nest the content under the Block environment (Edit  Increase List 
Depth).  The content can be a different environment (e.g., enumeration).


2. Suppose you have a program listing or a math array, and you want to 
animate the replacement of certain sections of the code or the introduction 
of certain pieces of code, how might that be done. I see a reference to 
overlays but the examples i looked at didn't contain them 



See sections 9.2 and 9.3 of the Beamer user guide.  You'll need to 
surround the animated material with ERT, using one of the commands 
(\onslide, \only, \visible etc.) described in the manual.  If you need 
something to occupy the space when the material is not visible, you 
might try \alt.  I've attached a small example.

There is an excellent manual in the latex distribution

LyX usage is described in this manual.

1. When i create a block, how do i get the block contents to actually appear 
inside the block. So what i currently have is:

Block (ERT[{title}] body): [[ {some heading} ]]
block contents
  

The way I do it is:
Block (ERT[(title} body): {Heading inside curly braces}
Point 1
Point 2

I don't remember the name for it, but I place the points under the Block 
with the arrow on the menubar: the same arrow used in an itemized list 
to make a subpoint under a main point. (A long red bar appears in front 
of everything.)


I'm afraid I know nothing about your second question, but if you find 
out the answer, I'll benefit!
