Free Form Drag and Drop question

Mar 28, 2013

Is there a way using free form drag and drop to have a different text box show up when a person drags different items into the target? Here's what I'm trying to do. I have a number of photos. I want the user to drag each photo into the target. Once in the target I would like a text box to appear with a description of the picture. If free form drag and drop won't work for this, is there anything that will? Can it even be done. This isn't a quiz, just a simple interaction to keep the user engaged.

Mike, this can easily be done with a free form drag&drop slide. In my quick example (see attached file and the published version is here:, I used three pictures and one drop target. Once a pic is dropped, the content of a text variable is changed and provides a description. You can 'dress this up' any way you want.
