Moving from Flash AS2 to Flash AS3: Button Press

Lately, I’ve begun dedicating my time towards learning Actionscript 3.0. I’ve been told that Actionscript 3.0 is a bit tricky, but very powerful once you get the hang of it. However, when I came across a simple button press, I realized this wasn’t going to be a walk in the park.

The simple button press is probably one of the most used features for Flash users. With Actionscript 3.0, this has changed quite a bit. This is why this tutorial will directly focus on just that.
