A button question

is there a way that when a button is activated it changes color and stays that way after the mouse has moved on?

Yes. You would use:

[COLOR=blue]on (release) {
newColour = 0xffff00;
newC = new Color(this);

as the button actions. 0xffff00, would have to be changed to the colour you want in hex.

Heres the fla

By the way, this doesn’t only apply to buttons. It can be a movie clip, but you can only change the colour of certain symbols.

This is good for games especially, but also has many uses.
