Unfortunately setting the image visibility to false has no effect. I had
it visible only because it's a demo and it's fun to watch the image
change; I have production code with such images false and still get the
RunRev's Ben Beaumont offered this tip on the dev list which works a
treat, also noting that this bug will be fixed in v4.6:
Firstly, we've tracked down the problem and fixed it for
the next release. In the meantime and for those using
older version of LC here is a workaround:
remove script of btn "ObjectDragFrontScript" from front
put gObjectDragInfoA["stack"] into tDestStack
send "doDragEnd tDestStack" to me in 0 millisecs
on doDragEnd tDestStack
if tDestStack <> empty then
put gObjectDragInfoA["loc"] into tLoc
set the defaultStack to tDestStack
set the properties of the templateButton to \
the properties of me
set the loc of last control to tLoc
select last control
The problem occurs because creating a button and setting the
loc causes (at some point) the dragAction global property to
be reset, which is then what the engine is returning to the
OS - hence the 'drag didn't succeed' snap-back.
The engine should really return the value of 'dragAction' at the
point the drop occured (before any messages are sent), rather
than after the drop had been processed. This is the underlying bug.
