Create your button

(Sorry for the phrasing, I'm french!)

First thing, you need to create a button on the stage (you already should know this by now!). When your done embed your button inside a movie clip (mc). You can do this by selecting the button (not the image inside the button), the press Insert-> Convert to symbol -> Movie Clip followed by OK. You now have what I called an instanciable button or a movie clip / button (mcbtn in hungarian notation). You can now name your movie clip instance. I called mine mcbtnDoubleClick but you don't need to name it that.

Preparing the instanciable button.

Double-click on mcbtnDoubleClick. You should have only one layer with one frame. I renamed this layer button.

Add a second layer and renamed it actions.

On frame 1 of the actions layer, enter this code (by double-clicking on the frame):

stop( );
