    Dragable mc with input fields

    windsurf88 Level 1
      Any ideas on how to have the top portion of an mc dragable but needs to drag the rest of mc. The mc contains input text fields.

      track_mc_bar.onPress = function():Void {
      this.startDrag(false);
      };
      track_mc_bar.onRelease = function():Void {
      this.stopDrag();
      };

      The drag works but inactivates the input text fields.

      Any ideas would be appreciated.
      Thanks.

          if i understood you correctly - what you have is a MC containing 'dragging'
          area and some text fields, and you want the 'dragging' mc to be able to drag
          the whole MC - one sollution would be wrting 'this._parent.startDrag(false)'
          instead of what you have.

          good luck,

            Yes -- but using this._parent.startDrag(false) makes whatever is on the stage draggable. If it could be confined to a layer or just the movie selected then it would work. So i thoought to cut up the movie clip, use the drag on one part of it and other has the text input. But the entire stage moves.

            Per haps I am not using this._parent.startDrag(false) correctly.

            ??

              perhaps your dragging MC isn't inside the dragged MC, but on the stage.
              as i said - what you should have is 'dragged_mc', inside it 'dragging_mc'
              and 'input_txt', thus the parent of the dragging MC is the dragged MC
