Let's have a Draggable Object snap back to its original place after it was dropped onto an incorrect Target Area. in this way the user is provided with feedback as well. This is achieved by the following steps:

1. Store the initial x and y coordinates of the Draggable Object
2. When released over an incorrect Target Area use the Set Property function to snap it back to the stored values.

Step 1: Within the Draggable Object's main timeline add the following as a Frame Action in frame 1 [= the one with the Button]:

Set Variable: "OrgX" = GetProperty ("", _x)
// Assign the value of the x coordinate to variable OrgX
Set Variable: "OrgY" = GetProperty ("", _y)
// Assign the value of the y coordinate to variable OrgY

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
