3: Add a button to your movie clip to close the pop-up window

The next step is to add a close button to your pop-up window. To do this, you’ll add a little more script to your movie clip.

  • Open your movie clip for the pop-up window.
  • Create or add a close button.
  • Add the following script to your close button:
on (press) {

The above script removes the "window" instance of your movie clip off the stage once the close button is pressed.

Enjoy your pop-up windows!

» 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.
