I have a drag&drop SwishMax2 app that runs fine in Flash
Player. It checks where you drop a movie clip (using
this._droptarget) and does something based on where you drop it.
Running the SWF standalone gives me the correct "dropzone" in
slash notation: /truthsZone/truthsZone or /liesZone/liesZone.
When I import the SWF into Captivate 3, drop the movie clip,
and debug the value of its "this._droptarget", it always returns
"/contentShade_mc" as the string value, regardless of where I drop
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Is Captivate
somehow interfering with the _droptarget value? Has anyone else out
there imported SWFs with drag & drop code into Captivate 3 and
had similar problems?
Did dome digging and it looks like _droptarget always returns
whatever it hits, starting from the main time (highest depth) -
which is the Captivate movie clip in this case. Used the hitTest()
method instead, and it works fine now.
