    this.swapDepths(this.getNextHighestDepth()); too sensitive

    I'm creating a quiz using action script 2.0. It has a few drag and drop questions. I used this.swapDepths(this.getNextHighestDepth()); to make the current dragged movieclip come to the front. The problem i'm having is when you move on to the next question, the last movie clip you clicked on stays on the stage. Anyway of getting around this but still have the movie clip go on top of its frame only?

    not really clear on what you're asking. what do you mean 'on top of its frame only'? also, do you want the last question to fall into the background, or disappear from the stage altogether?

    also keep the scope of your function in mind. if your dragged question is 'this', then you probably want to use it's parent's .getNextHighestDepth() to move it, not it's own.

    this.swapDepths(this._parent.getNextHighestDepth() )

    the way your doing it now, you read the next available depth from within the question, and make the question go to that depth within its parent, not the parents next highest.

    Hope that clear

    Here is the code i used

    answerTwo.onPress = function():Void {
    this.startDrag(true);
    reply_txt.text = "";
    this.swapDepths(this.getNextHighestDepth());
    xstart = 410;
    ystart = 211;
    };


    Is there anyway of canceling the this.getNextHighestDepth()); when the Movieclip is release?

    so you only want it raised to the highest depth when you're dragging it?

    you can't 'cancel' the getNextHighestDepth(), but you can just set it back when you're done. First sample the origianl depth at the onPress, then swap it up to the highest. On release just swap it back down to the origianl depth.

    answerTwo.onPress = function():Void {
    this.startDrag(true);
    reply_txt.text = "";
    this.originalDepth = this.getDepth();
    this.swapDepths(this.getNextHighestDepth());
    xstart = 410;
    ystart = 211;
    };

    answerTwo.onRelease = function(){
    this.swapDepths(this.originalDepth);
    this.stopDrag();
    }
