    [CS3] turning off a sound in a mc from a button in the main timeline

    Hi. I have a movie clip that has a looping background sound in it. From a button on the main timeline, I want to stop that bgsound from playing. Is this possible?

    Here is my code on the movie clip:
    PHP Code:
    bgSound = new Sound();

    and in the button I have:
    PHP Code:
    on (release) {

    I don't want to use the stopAllSounds command because then it kills my sound on the button when clicked.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    you just have to use Sound() function.

    Use script like this:

    Actionscript Code:
    globalvolume = new Sound();

    Aplly this to the onRelease funciton for the button. And set some variable to false for mute and true for sound.

    For Example in frame 1 write this script:

    _global.snd = true;
    globalvolume = new Sound();

    Then use this script for the button:

    Actionscript Code:

    if(_global.snd == true){


    _global.snd = false;


    else {


    _global.snd = true;



    Good Luck
