Detect mouse click without clicking on a button or movieclip

I’ve got the mouse pointer as a torch, and I want it to be turned on and off when the user clicks the mouse, but I can’t figure out how to detect the mouse click when the user isn’t clicking on a movieclip or button.

Thanks for any help!

Hey…I made a little example…I think this is what your looking for?

Thats exactly what I want to do! so you put the on(release) script inside the movieclip on a button!

Thanks for all the effort you put in :slight_smile:

no problem…yup invisible buttons are handy :D!
