Reversing frames of an mc

Hello all,
Well my latest conundrum has to do with making my mc go in reverse. I don’t know if that is even possible. I have a button that when clicked on starts an mc. But what I want is to be able to click on another button and have that mc go in reverse. Which would give it the apperance of closing.

Any thoughts, thanks LOTW

Check the prevFrame() function, that’s what you need.

I made a simple example of this for someone else, and it’s still on my web host if you want to take a look:

Basically, the FLA is two buttons and a simple tween animation. One button makes the animation go forward and the other makes it go backwards. I threw it together in about 5 minutes, so when I say “simple” it’s really simple looking.
