    fire event after drop

    Starlover_jacob Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      I have a list of images and a dropcanvas.

      I can drag the image from the list onto the dropcanvas.

       

      The item I drop has the following event listeners.

                  img.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN,function1);
                   img.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP,function2);

       

      Problem:

      If the image is dropped onto the dropcanvas i want to fire the event of the dropped item.

       

      I tried something like this:

      var result1:Boolean = img.dispatchEvent(new MouseEvent(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, true, false));
      var result2:Boolean = img.dispatchEvent(new MouseEvent(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, true, false));

       

      But it doesn't fire.

       

      When the image is dropped on the canvas, and i drag it around inside that canvas and drop it again, the mouseup and mousedown events do fire.

      Its just the first time i drop the item onto the canvas.

       

      Please some help.

      Greets, J.
