pause button

hello, i have to make a pause button which works like this:
during a slideshow, in the stage there's only the pause button. on rollover, no problem on this, the arrow becomes a finger, and it's restored on mouseleave. if i click the button turns into another (just the same button, simply in red color as to feedback the show is paused) and no problems about this. of course, the slideshow stops, i found a script ok in the forum. The thing is that i'd like to be able to click the same button another time so that: the slideshow re-starts from the same point, and the button is back to the original colour, to say the film is again in play mode.
I'm doing all this with two buttons (pause - play), and the script i found works great, but i'd really like that kind of single button.

RE: pause button

hello, here's the script i found:
on every frame:

global gPauseMode

on exitframe
if gPauseMode = true then
go to the frame
end if

on pause putton:
global gPauseMode

on mouseup
  gPauseMode = true

on play button:
global gPauseMode

on mouseup
  gPauseMode = false
end if

and everyting works good, i didn't mention of course the behaviours for changing the arrow on mouseover and for chenging the sprite. but i need all of this with one button. thanks

RE: pause button

You can combine your buttons like this:

global gPauseMode

on mouseUp me
  gPauseMode = not gPauseMode
end mouseUp
