    how is it possible to have a button that pressed once stops a movie and then when pressed starts it again.

    it is easy to do if you have seperate buttons
    but i only want one

    Hi...
    The following example stops and starts the main timeline:

    1) Insert/New Symbol/Movie.
    2) Frame1: Add a button with the script:

    on (release) {
    _root.play();
    gotoAndStop (2);
    }

    3) Add a blank keyframe at frame 2 and place another instance of the same button there. Add the script:

    on (release) {
    _root.stop();
    gotoAndStop (1);
    }

    Good luck.

    does it matter though if the movie i am trying to control
    is another movie residing in the main timeline

    Good luck.

    Hi..
    Makes know difference, all you need to do is adjust the scripts so they point to the MC your targeting.

    on (release) {
    myMovie.play();
    gotoAndStop (2);
    }

    Hope this helps.
