    Symbols interacting with other symbols?

    NextGenDigital2013

      I'm quite new to Edge Animate, but am picking it up rapid and have a rather basic knowledge of coding. I am trying to get one symbol (symbol 1) to interact with another symbol (symbol 2), using a variable from symbol 2's timeline as a conditional statement. I'll try and explain it... Both symbols are duplicates. The have a 'showing' variable set to the value of 0. If either is clicked, then the timeline plays and the 'showing' variable is set to a value of 1.


      What I need to do is if symbol 1 is clicked, then it changes the 'showing' value of symbol 2 to the opposite of what it is (so if it was 1, then change to 0 and vice versa), which will either play or playReverse symbol 2's timeline.

       

      Does anyone have any pointers on how I would code this into the symbol's 'click'? Or should I be using triggers? I have tried everything I can think of and just can't get it to do what I want.

       

      Thanks in advance for any help!
