Using a var to control button states
OK, this is gonna sound elementary... but here goes:
I've got 8 buttons on the stage. Each button displays content on layers assigned to it (8 layers -- 1 for each button).
When a button is clicked and the layer is OPEN, I want the button state to be a different color. I've created a "Selected" state and highighted the button.
When the user closes the layer OR clicks another button, I want the previously selected button to return to its normal state, and the current selected button to highlight.
Is there a way to control this behavior with a variable instead of creating tons of triggers to control the 8 button states across 8 layers?
I created a var called "buttonSelected" but I'm not sure how (or if) I can control a button state with a var.
Any help is mucho appreciated...
