Button actions

Now on to the buttons. To start, select the actions for the up button. Then type the code:

on (press) {
    tellTarget(_root.scrollUP) {
         play();
          }
     }
on (release) {
     tellTarget(_root.scrollUP) {
          stop();
          }
     }
For the down button, these are the actions:
on (press) {
    tellTarget(_root.scrollDN) {
         play();
          }
     }
on (release) {
     tellTarget(_root.scrollDN) {
          stop();
          }
     }

Explanation of Code

This code, for both of the buttons, basically calls the movie clips on the stage, by the names that you have given them, to play, and stop, on the commands of the user. When the user clicks on the button, the code tells whichever movie clip to begin to play. That is where the code for the scroll property is stored, making the text move.
