Hi Pete,

Not sure if this is an option for you, but have you tried adding a state trigger that would change the object to disabled after dropping it on the correct target? This would prevent the user from moving it once it's been placed. If you don't want that object appearing on top, or if you want it to disappear after it's been dropped, you could also edit the disabled state. 

Just a thought

HI Pete,

Sorry for the delay!  I took a look at the file and I think I may have set it up in a way that will work for you. I added a new disabled state for the first object, the light bulb. I also added a trigger that would change the state of this object when it's dropped onto the correct answer target (the middle target on the second row). This way, the user can see what was placed there, but they won't be able to move the object.

Now, to reset this if the user wants to change the choice they made after submitting the course, I added a trigger to the "OK" button on the "Try again" layer that will reset the object to its "Normal" state. This way, they'll be able to work with it again and place it where ever they'd like. 

You should be able to do this will all of the objects here. I'm attaching the modified file, if you'd like to take a look.

I hope this works for you. Let me know if you have any questions!

hi christine, thanks so much for your help.
unfortunatley thats not quite what my client is after i did have a simlar work around but i really needed to know if it was possible to do a normal drag drop, submit the answers and then change the state of the correct ones to disabled allowing the user to have another go but keeping the correct ones locked in from the previous attempt

Hi Pete,

Ahhh, I think I understand now. So basically, you want to retain the correct answers after the question has been submitted, but not the incorrect ones?

So, say for example, three of the six answers are correct. You're wanting the three that are correct to stay on their correct targets, but you want the remaining, incorrect three results to be available again? That might be a bit more complicated, but if that's what you're trying to do, you may be able to accomplish it. 

I haven't tried this out yet, I just want to make sure I'm getting a good idea of how you'd like this set up.

Oh, well that's good to know!

I have to admit, though, I'm still pretty interested in trying this out one day If I do set something up, I can try to share it here with you, if you'd like.

Either way, I'm happy to hear you're able to use another method for this. I hope it goes well! 

Have a great day :)
