Create the Controls
Create a new empty movie clip, name it "drag" and place it somewhere on the layout. Bring up the instance properties for the clip and also, call it "drag".
Open the frame actions for the first frame of the movie and insert the following code:
startDrag ("_root.drag", true); stop ();
This will tell the movie to attach the drag movie clip to the cursor. This allows us to track the cursor's location.
Create a new empty movie clip, name it "control" and place it somewhere on the layout. Give this instance the name "control".
