Right Mouse on Button

Ok, I found this great script on using the right mouse:

function rMouseDown() {
        if(Key.isDown(2)){
                clearInterval(rMouseListen);
                rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseUp, 40, mc);
                trace("right mouse down");
                        
        }
}
function rMouseUp(mc:MovieClip) {
        if(!Key.isDown(2)){
                clearInterval(rMouseListen);
                rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseDown, 40);
                trace("right mouse up");
                        
        }
}
rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseDown, 40);


How can it be used though on a button so only if you right-mouse click on the button that it works.  So it shouldn't work if the mouse is off the button.

so you want to eliminate left click functionality? Is that what you mean?

or do you mean.. how do you make sure it works when its within a particular button?

If it's number two, you can do a hitTest with an IF statement, and that should cover that.
If it's number one, then don't do any onRelease statements, and you should be fine.

Hi Iammontoya. Yes, number 2.  Would you be able to provide an example of how this could be done using hitTest.

1.
Create a MovieClip (not button) on root with instance name "btn"

2.
and put this code on first frame...
-------------
function rMouseDown()
{
      if (Key.isDown(2) && _root.btn.hitTest(_root._xmouse,_root._ymouse))
      {
            clearInterval(rMouseListen);
            rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseUp, 40);
            trace("right mouse down on btn");
      }
}
function rMouseUp()
{
      if (!Key.isDown(2))
      {
            clearInterval(rMouseListen);
            rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseDown, 40);
            trace("right mouse up");
      }
}
rMouseListen = setInterval(rMouseDown, 40);
-----------

3.
Compile (press CTRL+ENTER) to test it
