    The easiest way tod do this: put two pictures on keyframes with a stop() command inside your movieclip and toogle the display like this:


    function mymc1ClickHandler(evtObj:MouseEvent){

             // the modulo Operator [%] will take care that 1switches to 2 and 2 switches to 1

              evtObj.currentTarget.gotoAndStop((evtObj.currentTarget.currentFrame%2 )+1);

    you should place all the code on frame 1 of your main (highest) timeline.

    If your buttons are embeded in other MovieClips you can use


    //if your movieClip is called "container"

    container.mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mymc1ClickHandler);

    container.mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, mymc1_overHandler);

    container.mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, mymc1_outHandler);
