Okay, maybe a bit of a misleading title, but I'm working on a quiz/presentation in Flash, and I need your help, guys.

My goal is to make a presentation for a quiz, based on a very popular format over here in Belgium. It's not so much a matter of giving the right answer to the right question, but asociating (e.g. a certain name is given, and the candidates must say as much as they know, they have to give 4 keywords (eg: Beethoven: composer, German, Wolfgang, Symfony)) Another innovative aspect is the fact that a players time he has left and his score are one and the same.
The application starts with some frames for the quizmaster, where he can fill in the answers, questions and player names, and then a public part using the parameters entered by the quizmaster before the quiz. That way anyone can make his own version withouth having to use Flash

I've got quite a bit figured out already, but I still have some problems. I will post them here when I encounter them.

Problem 1: Making input text dragable:
I need code to make input text dragable. Now, when I use a symbol with input text in it, and I use the startDrag, Stopdrag commands, the text is no longer editable by the user. Other option: use a second dragable symbol that, after dragging, sets the position of the input text to the position of the dragable object.

Well since no one responded here, I'd suggest re-posting (or have a mod move) this to Web Design and Development (http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=58). Good luck.

It's okay, I almost forgot to adjust it here, but I found a solution (by nesting a movie clip inside a button inside a movie clip)
