you can't use dropTarget, correct? and you need to loop through all displayobjects to see which have a positive hitTest with your dropped object, correct?
No, I think I can use drop target, I just need to use it from the DropActivity class and not a document class. I just don't know how to use it from a non-document class.
"and you need to loop through all displayobjects to see which have a positive hitTest with your dropped object, correct?"
I am trying to say..... ok, what movie clip is currently under the one I have selected, the drop activity class knows what object I have selcted as it is in the selectedClip variable. so I need to find out what clip is under it ......... the light just came on!
answer duh......dropCheck.checkAgainst = _selectedClip.dropTarget.parent.name;
