Hey all,

How would I go about attaching the blue circle to a corner of the rectangle? While not using an action point.

If i change the X to something different then the Y it sorta free floats.

Any particular reason you don't want to use an image point? It would be the easiest way.

I don't know how to do that using trigonometry like yours, but here's a pretty simple way - you put the circle in the center, then move it towards the end and top of the box, all within the same tick. :)

PS: Deadeye is right, I think - it might be simplest to just place image points at all four corners and use those.

What is wrong with Box.Bottom, Box.Top, Box.Left, Box.Right?

Yeah, I can't use an image point because I'm loading sprites from an external file, and the image points would change for each picture. So I need to figures this way out.

If the objects will vary in size, then you should consider using .Width, .Height expressions instead of fixed numbers :)
