Finishing it Off
Once that is all complete we need to tell the movie to stop at each state and set the variable "boxStatus" to reflect real-time nature of the switch (1 = on, 0 = off) then wait for the next click. This allows your movie clip to hold state information which the rest of your movie can access. Create a new layer to hold the actions in the Movie Clip timeline.
Next select the keyframe, choose Modify > Frame then click on the actions tab. The actions I used are as follows.First Frame:
Set Variable: "boxStatus" = "0" StopSecond Frame:
Set Variable: "boxStatus" = "1" Stop
Now your movie is essentially complete. All you have to do is drag your movie clip on to the stage and continue building your project!!
Good luck and Happy Flashing!
