drag-and-drop "dragged off" needed

I'm creating my first drag-and-drop slide.  Here's what I want to do:

1. I have 5 objects that the user can drag onto the same drop target (an image of a monitor).

2. Each time an object drags onto the monitor, a specific layer appears with info about that object.

3. When the user drags the object back off the monitor, the layer should hide.

I got it all working except for number 3.  It works if object 1 is on the monitor and you drag object 2 on.  But what doesn't work is if you drag object 1 on and then drag it back off again, I can't get the layer to hide.

I've been looking for a way to hide layer if the object is dragged off a target, but that doesn't seem to be an option... only dragged on or dragged over.  I tried creating a transparent shape around the drop target and use the dragged over trigger to hide the layer, however it didn't work.

Any ideas on how to make a layer hide when the object is dragged off the target?


Thank you!

Thanks for pointing that out, Phil.  I just tried actually changing the surrounding background image to transparent and it did work.  I had tried making a background image with no fill and no stroke and that did not work.  I had assumed that's the same as transparent.  Live and learn.  Thank you!
