Activating a toggle button from ActionScript
Posted on 2006-10-25
I have a movie clip that consists of two frames, one frame containing an ON button and the other containing an OFF button. The ActionScript for each frame is stop() and the ActionScript for each button instance is
So when you click the movie instance on the main stage, you advance to the next frame (second if coming from first, first if coming from second) and the icon changes between an ON graphic and and OFF graphic, implementing a toggle botton. My problem is that I would like to toggle the button internally from ActionScript to an initial state depending on the value of some variable. The movie clip instance is called tog so I tried adding
to the frame 1 code for the main timeline, but this doesn't do it. The state stays at the state for frame 1 of the tog movie clip.
Does anyone know what's going on here and how I can toggle this switch from ActionScript?
