Adding ActionScript to the slider

Now that we've finished creating the slider, we can exit the symbol edit mode and go back to the main timeline (ctrl+e or click Scene 1). Create 2 additional layers and name them text, sliders and scripts.
It should look like this:

Select the sliders layer and drag 2 instances of the slider movie clip onto the stage. Position them so one is above the other and align them vertically to the stage. Select the top slider instance and use the instance panel to give it the name panSlider.

Select the bottom slider instance and use the instance panel to give it the name volSlider.

Now we just have to add some ActionScript to the slider instances. Right click on the volSlider instance, select Actions to open the Object Actions Panel and insert the following ActionScript.

» 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.
