Frame 4: Active_Search or Manual Press Button?

Here we check if 'active_search' is set to 1. If not, we don't do anything at all. Look at the actions in the button that says 'GO'. Yuo will find it tells this timeline to start playing again in Frame 2 -- the filtering script. That's all there is to it.
If (/:active_search)
    Go to and Play (3)
End If
Since this seems to be one of my most popular Flash Toys and it was also one of my original ones -- it was not a very easy to read piece of code nor was it very well documented. As a result I have had numerous emails asking for explanations... I hope to cut those down by offering this semi-tutorial, which covers most of the tricky parts of this routine. I also put some effort into making the code cleaner and more easily understandable by using variable names that make clear sense.

Enjoy. : )

» 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.
