Nearly there - so now lets make the window dragable on the mainstage.

Go to the dragbar's movie clip level right click on the button object and enter the code:

on (press) {
startDrag (_parent);
on (release, releaseOutside) {
stopDrag ();

Note: (_parent) refers Actionscript to the parent layer (in this case the window's movie clip)and will drag this object rather than the dragbar dragging independent of the window.

Well there it is, not really rocket science but it works well as long as all the objects have been properly aligned, to get a better understanding of how it's done download the zip file and check it out. To add content to your window, either graphics, a textframe, or a combination, add new layers to the screen object's layer and place them there.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
