Newbe Drag & Drop Question

Douglas Gilliland
I am writing a stack on Density for my students. I want them to drag a
cube of iron on to an electronic balance to mass it. The script would
change the display of the balance from 0.00 grams to thel mass of the
iron sample.

 I have made the cube draggable by assigning it the following scipt:
on mousedown
drag me
end mousedown
That part works great.

I attempted to place a hidden button over the balance and use the
dragenter message in a variety of ways but cannot get it to work.
When I used HyperStudio the dragdrop function was built into the
program so I didn't learn how to script it.
Any advice for a Dreamcard newbe?
Thanks,
Doug Gilliland

Hi Doug,

You are right, Rev needs a bit of scripting to handle drag an drop  
but it's a good thing since scripting allows to manage this feature  
precisely.
You might be interested in a tutorial about drag and drop you can  
access trough Tutorials Picker.
Tutorials Picker is available on Rev Online - user: So Smart Software.

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.

Nicholas,
Worked like a dream! Thank you - you made my day.
And thanks to Eric also. While  Nicholas solved this problem, I did
download your stack and will spend some time studying it.
Again I appreciate all the help.
