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:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
