Default Counting to 8 and starting over

My problem is that I can't seem to reset the countReg var back to 0 once it hits 8. Any ideas? I Would also like to have another button that count backwards to 0 and starts over again at 8.

var countReg:Number = 0;

function nextReg(event:MouseEvent) : void
if (countReg == 9)
(countReg == 0);

trace (countReg) // it just keeps counting up. won't start over after 8


this.next1_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, nextReg);

ActionScript Code:
var countReg:Number; stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, nextReg); function nextReg(event:MouseEvent):void {     if (countReg < 8)     {         countReg++;     }     else     {         countReg = 0;     }     trace(countReg); }

(countReg == 0);
There's your problem. Use a double equals == for an if statement, but if you want to assign a value, you need a single equals =. Just change it to:
countReg = 0;
