A question about drag and drop

Jan 22, 2014

Hello All,

I've attached a piece from a project I'm working on.

Here is my challenge.  I have used the drag and drop freeform to crate the base slide and the layers that would be triggered off of it.

What I want to be able to do is have the same kind of interaction with different drag and drop happening on one of the sub layers.

I know I could build each interaction onto it's own slide, but it feels more oganzied to keep in together this way.

Here is my question.

Can you have the return to origional position, and allow only one item on a drop target on a layer or can it only be done on the base slide.

Thanks for all your feedback.

Hi Ari,

I'm not entirely sure what's supposed to happen, but thought I'd start the conversation.

So, I looked at your file, and from the base layer I dragged Brian onto the circle. That showed the Question 1 benefits layer, where I see that you have 6 rectangle pic and a "poster target."

You can set those 6 rectangles up to be draggable. One way is to create a drop correct state for them, and then add a trigger to change their states to drop correct when they're dropped onto the "poster target." Not sure if there's only 1 correct answer here or not, but of course you can also set up drop incorrect states.

I'm also thinking you're not looking to have this graded?

Hi Ari,

So, for Part 1

What i want to happen is to have the question 1 layer, work the same as the base layer and have the items return to their original positions if dropped outside the dotted box,

if you set the objects (e.g. the rectangles on the benefits layer) to a Drop correct state when they're dropped on target (e.g., the poster target on the benefits layer), they automatically bounce back if they're dropped anywhere else.

But, for Part 2

or if another rectangle is dropped on it.

I don't know how to get an object to bounce back if it's "incorrectly" dragged onto the post target....that is, on a layer.

Hope someone else can find a solution.
