I'm going to beat the drag and drop function with a stick
May 22, 2012
The drag and drop function is driving me nuts and i have spent way too long trying to figure out why it behaves incorrectly.
At the moment I have a drag and drop function where a user drops and email into a box (they are actually dragging and dropping a see-through picture on top of the email).
When they drag over the box a plus sign appears - when they aren't over the box a crossed out zero appears. If you drop the email in the wrong spot it returns to it's start location. Annoyingly it goes back as the crossed out zero. To fix this I made a trigger that if the email is dropped anywhere but the correct location it changes state to be a see through picture.
However that trigger seems to make it so the email doesn't return to it's start point, instead it goes to approximately the middle of the slide!! This happens with drop target snaps on or off and with either return to start point option selected.
I can't upload the file but the picture below shows the trigger that stops the 'return to start point' from occuring.
By the way in the trigger shown 'rectangle 1' takes up the whole slide. I have tried it with ectangle 1 in place or without it and all but the drop area selected.
All help appreciated.
