Draggable Object?

Post by dalkin » Mon Jul 09, 2007 1:39 am

Does anyone know whether a graphic object can be made draggable in a stand-alone app?

I know! :twisted:







Check out the drag command, or if that does not suffice, you can set the location of your graphic relative to the mouse in a repeat loop.

Before I posted this, I tried searching the dictionary and it returns the following, none of which is relevant:

If you know of another location where I could get the info, it'd be appreciated.

Hi,

the easiest way is the grab command.

on mouseDown
grab me
end mouseDown

If you need to constrain the movement let us know.

All the best,

Malte

LOL! You're not the only one Björnke. "Grab" always feels like such a hostile and forward thing to do with a poor little Rev object, so it never enters my mind.
