Hi Folks

I have a drag and drop. My problem is when I am dragging "d1_mc" and my cursor is on "drop_01_mc" the Rollover does not work.

It works if I am not dragging "d1_mc"

How can i execute a onRollOver function when I am dragging "d1_mc" and it is on top of "drop_01_mc"

Any Ideas
Thanks

d1_mc.onMouseDown = function(){
      if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)) {
                  this.startDrag();
                  this.swapDepths(depths++);            
      }      
};

d1_mc.onMouseUp = function (){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse,_root._ymouse,true)){
            this.stopDrag();
                  if(this.hitTest(drop_01_mc)){
                        this.gotoAndStop(3);
                  }else{
                        this._x = this.origX;
                        this._y = this.origY;
                        playClonk();
                  }
      }
}



drop_01_mc.onRollOver = function (){
      trace("drop01mc rollover");
}

drop_01_mc.onRollOut = function (){
      trace("drop01mc rollout");
}

One solution would be to create an invisible drop target movieclip on top of d1_mc and attach the rollover handlers to that instead. Make it the same shape as drop_01_mc but set its alpha to 0%.
