# How to force a Manipulator inside a Manipulate to auto-run?

I want to use a slider (not drop-down list) for a list of discreteValues to do the Manipulate (I used Sin[x] below for simplicity, but the actual one is much more complicated). At the same time, I needed to show a function of x next to the slider (below I used x^2 as an example).

Besides, since the output would be used by other notebook, I would use SaveDefinitions -> True.

discreteValues = {0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.8, 1.6, 2.0, 2.2};

Manipulate[Sin[x],Row[{Control[{x, discreteValues, Manipulator, AutoAction -> False}], Dynamic[x^2]}], SaveDefinitions -> True]


By default, the slider won't auto-run. How can I force the slider to auto-run by default?

I tried to simply change Manipulate to Animate, but I got the error.

Many thanks!

Replace Manipulator with Animator:
Manipulate[Sin[x],
