How to drag text? (and other question about drag&drog)

#1 Post by abeplaga » Fri Jun 28, 2019 3:03 pm

Hi! On a temporal screen I'm trying to drag a image with some text over it. I read the documentation but... I can't know if I'm doing well.

I use the code of the example of this I created a window with an image and a text but it doesn't work, can't drag... Then I tried to use the original code of the example but it does not work either.

So, is it possible to do it?

The original code of the example:

Code: Select all

screen say:

        drag_name "say"
        yalign 1.0
        drag_handle (0, 0, 1.0, 30)

        xalign 0.5

        window id "window":
            # Ensure that the window is smaller than the screen.
            xmaximum 600

            has vbox

            if who:
                text who id "who"

            text what id "what"
In my code I've put an add image and text "text" inside the window instead of the who and what.

And other question about drag and drop... Can I limit the area where you can do drag?

That's it... Thanks for the future help!

pay attention to drag_handle
it's the area that you can click and drag, if you remove it, you can drag the window by clicking anywhere inside of it.
the other possibility is: your window is inside something the same size or smaller. this way when you drag, it can't move a noticeable amount.
