Fix button colour

How do I keep a movieclip button to stay in it’s hit state after it has been pressed?

For example - Say I have a button that has white colour, but when you click it, it turns black. how do I keep the button black

i really need this…

You don’t need a button, you need a movieclip with “on” event handlers. Look in the Kirupa tutorials for advanced button. That’s probably what you need.
