Building the buttons

Create a button that will be the minimize button. Name it 'minimize'. Now create a button that will be your maximize button. Name it 'maximize'. Next, create a button that will be your drag button. (This will be the button the user will click and hold on to drag the window.) Name it 'drag'. Finally, create a button that will be the close button. Name it 'close'. Position the buttons anywhere you want on the top box, only DO NOT put your maximize button in yet. Double click on the drag button to bring up the properties dialog box, and select the 'Actions' tab. Enter the following code:

On (Press)
      Start Drag ("")
End On
On (Release)
      Stop Drag
End On

Now select your 'minimize' button, and add this code to the 'Actions' tab:

On (Release)
      Go to and Stop (2)
End On

Add the following code to your 'close' button:

On (Release)
      Go to and Stop (3)
End On

» 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.
