This is an easy tutorial on how to detect when the user presses the right mouse button. It can be useful in flash games that have boundaries for the user's mouse.


Getting Started

1. Open up flash and start a new document. Make it what ever size you like.

2. Click on the text tool and type something like what I did. Make sure the text is static text.

3. Select the text and then select Modify > Convert to Symbol from the main menu. Make it a movie clip instance. (Don't give it a name.)

4. Give these actions to the movie clip:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (Key.isDown(2)) {

5. Make a blank frame (F7).

6. Add some text that tells the user they right clicked.

That's it! Your done with this tutorial.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
