This sample illustrates wiring up an event to fire when interrupts come in on an InterruptPort when wired up to a circuit that sends intermittent signals such as a button.

        // An interrupt port raises events when its value changes. in this case, 
        // we use it to create an event when the button is clicked.
        // We set the Interrupt mode to raise an event on both edges of the signal;
        // both down, and up.

            // will be 1 when pressed (raised high), and 0, when unpressed
