Building The Clip
Firstly you have to create the button. I won't going into details but if you need help, check out the tutorial on building buttons. Once you have a button we need to create a movie clip to house the button. To do this, select the button and press F8 or choose Insert > Convert to Symbol.... Now you want to edit your movie clip. Right-click on the new movie clip and select Edit from the context menu. The movie clip's timeline should appear with the button in the first frame.
Now we're going to set up the timeline. Firstly, place another keyframe in frame 2 by clicking on the frame and pressing F6. You will notice a copy of your button will also appear in this frame. Now select frame 5 and press F5. This will fill all the frames in between with frames containing your button on frame 2. This is so when the movies waits for the second click of the double click, the user will still see the button.
Next we need to add an actions layer. In this layer place 3 keyframes, one in frame 1, 2 and 7. By now your movie clip's timeline should look something like this.
Now let's add the actions!
