Drag from scrollview; Creating a copy of selected item
« on: October 08, 2013, 10:20:50 AM »
Hello,

I have a scrollview with a bunch of buttons you can press. What i want to do is if you press a button and drag off of it, a copy should be attached to the mouse that you are able to drop on some area.

I create the copy fine but two things happen. It doesn't react to OnPress( false ) when i release the mouse. And the scroll view keeps moving when i move the mouse up and down.

What would be a solution to fix the scroll view and let the object react to the mouse event sent?

I did some more googling and came across this post: http://www.tasharen.com/forum/index.php?topic=62.0

ArenMook suggests what i currently do, although instead of instantiating a copy i create a whole new gameobject set up the way i want for what ever purpose. But it's not receiving an mouse events it seems.

[Edit]
Seems the collider was being set to 1,1,1 in size : /
However the following issue is left. If i try to drag the scroll view, the button I drag on makes a copy as i use OnDrag in the button to create a copy for dragging.

Requirements:
Drag a copy of an item off of the list without the scrollview following mouse movement
Still be able to scroll the view since it use OnPress to init dragging

You need to set the pressed object on the UICamera.currentTouch to your new one, and likely update other relevant properties as well.
