Drag Drop Action

Postby Guest » Fri Mar 18, 2005 5:12 am

Trying out the drag'n'drop in NB5 ... but can`t work out how to make something happen if object succesfully dropped into selected drop zone...


If object 1 successfully dropped into dropzone1 "sound buzzer"... else do nothing.

I'm sure this is simple...

you could try .... the system sound function ... that works .... as far as the soundbuzzer or playtone functions ... I can't get them to work either ... I seems to me alot of stuff don't work in nb5 for some reason.

Hi domino,

In the Jigsaw Puzzle pub, edit the DragDrop code in one of the puzzle pieces to read (for example):
Code: Select all
SetVar "[DropAccept]" "True"
If "[DropTarget]" "=" "LowerRight"

instead of just
Code: Select all
SetVar "[DropAccept]" "True"

That should do it for you.

And ... SoundBuzzer and Playtone are working on my copy of NB5 running WIN2K SP4.

Taken from NB5 sample file US

Code: Select all
If "[DropTarget]" "=" "LincolnDrop"
  ShowObject "Lincoln" "None" "0"
  PlaySoundFile  "Ding.wav" "Normal"
  If "[DropTarget]" "=" "Rectangle1"
    HideObject "Lincoln" "None" "0"
    PlaySoundFile  "Error.wav" "Normal"

I was too quick to post..

I hadn`t spotted the new predefined global variables and to further compound my shame.. there is a good explanation in the help file...

I`ll put on my hair shirt now :oops:
