I am having trouble implementing a manual drag and drop with the run time textareas....I'm trying to create a proxy like it is done for the Euro coins example at the bottom of this tutorial -> http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/quickstart/adding_drag_and_drop/#manual
but thats for IMAGES and I'm using TextAreas.....
filterData.mouseMove = true;
filterData.backgroundColor = "#000000";

Thank you for your reply...it seems replies are hard to come by here. Do you know if there are any other forums where there is more activity?
Do you happen to know what Flex component to use in this situation:

For example now im trying to add a creationComplete attribute and i just dont know how!
creationComplete is not an attribute it's an event. So you just have to use the addEventListener method to listen to it, like you did for the mouse move event.
Wow! Ok sorry for all the questions...I'm a newbie and learning this stuff....Thanks to both of you!
