Generally used with the IF command, this script returns 1 if the button is down and 0 if the button is up.

DEFINITIONS:

  • button_name: A string with the name of a button in the code input window.

If the button in the same code window named with the value in $player is activated, then the current button will display "DOWN". Otherwise, the button displays "UP".
