Create the Button

Draw a rectangle and convert it into a button. Click on it and go to the Properties Window (Window>Properties). Enter the Width and the Height of the Movie as the width and height of the button. You can check the size of the Movie by selecting Modify>Document.
In the X and Y positions of the button (from the Properties Window) enter the value 0. This will make the button cover the entire scene properly.

Note: If the Width and Height fields are not visible in the Properties window, you need to click on the small arrow icon at the lower right of the Properties window to expand it

Now open up the Actions Pane for the Button.
Type in the following:

on (press)
if (_root.flag==false)
trace("Double click!");
//Other actions to be taken

Note: If you want the button to mix with the background, just double-click on the button and left-click on the first keyframe under Up. Right-click on it and select 'Cut Frames'. Right-click on the keyframe under Hit and select 'Paste frames'. After that return to the scene by double-clicking on any empty area.
