Im making a cd rom with voice over prompts for stage elements. Id like the user to able to turn off the prompts if they so choose. Unfortunatly stopallsounds works for continuous audio so I think I need a solution that checks the current global volume and turns it to the oposite. ie, if the volume is on (100) the button then turns it to off (0) and vice versa. In this way the user can turn sound on and off.
Any help will be gratefully received.

(note this is AS2, please let me know if you need AS3 code)

Put this in the first frame of the main timeline, this should create a global sound variable.

var globalSound:Sound = new Sound();
globalSound.setVolume(100);


then on your button click event handler use the following code.

if(_root.globalSound.getVolume() == 100)
{
      _root.globalSound.setVolume(0);      
}
else
{
      _root.globalSound.setVolume(100);
}
