So What About The Single Click?
I'm glad you asked. Now we going to look at the action in the frames on the action layer. Before you go any further I have to mention that there are some actions that are here for display purposes only. Namely anything using the variable "/:text" or "/:frame". I've placed these here so you can see what is happening when the movie clip is playing.
In the first frame add a stop action. We won't place anything in the second frame as this is only a "/:frame" variable. Now we will add the final actions to the 7th Frame:
Set Variable: "/:text" = "Single Click" Comment: Add your single click actions here Go to and Play (1)
As you can see there is another "/:text" variable but more importantly you can see that this is where the single click actions go. Once your single click actions are invoked the movie clip will go back to frame 1 and wait for another click.
Well that it, you now have a button with double click funtionality. Of course you don't have to stop there. You can also add drag functionality with the use of the On Press mouse event. Who knows maybe one day soon online Flash desktops will be everywhere? :)
Good luck and happy flashing!!
