Hi I am doing some investigation before saying yes to a
project.... this is the first question of many !!
The user wishes to have a library of Sports coaching
equipment which they can select and drag onto the stage and arrange
without limits e.g.
Library (which might come from a MIAW) contains, cones,
ladders, bibs, balls, goals hoops etc etc - If i want 4 cones on
the screen I click the cone in my library and drag it to the stage
4 times and arrange wherever (using movable in prop inspector) if I
want an extra cone I just drag another one etc etc.
Similarly 'Player characters' numbered 1-99 in various
colours (squad numbers) drag these onto the screen.
It would also be great to have an'Exchange Cast member' type
feature where if I wanted to swap player 5 for player 60 I click on
who I want out and who I want in and click exchange or 'Substitute'
I did something similar to this a while back. I had three
sets of eight graphics that worked as stickers. The user could
click and drag any of the stickers to a new location on the stage.
If I remember correctly, I created a new sprite on the users
mouseDown event, positioned this new sprite, under the user's
cursor and let it be dragged to a new location on the stage. The
user's mouseUp set the sticker sprite in place.
To remove a sticker, the user just dragged it off a set area
of the stage. It was all pretty simple to do.
