1. No, you cannot ONLY have 1 chair and drag that same chair in 10 different places and have 10 of them when you're done - the math doesn't work out... 1 cannot equal 10. But you can drag a copy of the chair instead and end up with 10 instances on the stage at some point. When you click down on the chair you can have a copy of it created exactly where the 1 chair is and then assign drag code to the copy.
2. Yes, you just create a variable that you use to keep count. The variable starts at a value of 1 for the 1 chair you start with, and each time you create a new copy you add 1 to that variable.
Sorry Ned. I really didn't know how to explain it.
All I am trying to do is have a single item (many different items listed) and simply drag drop an item. I have no idea how many "items or chairs" a person will want to drop on the stage, so I want to be able to have these items listed on top and the user just grabs a chair, put it in place and if they want another, grab another.
So when you say I can Click on a chair - make a copy, how do I do that? (this is on the finished product) Not the .fla
Would you also point me in the direction of the count variable?
I meant to post a Thank you and Solved on my last discussion.
How you make a copy depends on which version of Actionscript you are using. You should get that working, then maybe you will be able to see how to work in a count variable as you add chairs.
"I meant to post a Thank you and Solved on my last discussion. " What's stopping you?
I am not sure what you mean but saying get "that" working. I am working with CS5.5 which seems to do AS 1-3.
What is stopping me is: The forum is extremely slow.. it's taken me about 5 minutes to get to this point to reply. I'll take another 5 and post it.
Yes, CS5.5 supports using all versions of Actionscript. Which are you using? "that" is the chair bit you want to have happen. I am not going to be making decisions for you, but I can offer some help as soon as you do.
