# how can I move a object inside the outline of other objects

Get help using Construct 2

how can I use the drag and drop behavior, to move a ocbjeto around the contour of another object? Imagine a square with only the color outline and inside unfilled. how can I make an object with behavior drag and drop to move only around the square without leaving the contour. I wish with this same logic, be applied if the cube was moving during the drag and drop, and I could use sprites with complex shapes like the outline of a star shape. imagine a hexagram, making for an object with the behavior drag and drop to move for each star line segment as the player podesse draw it

You can do something like this:
Sprite1.X<Sprite2.BBoxLeft+Sprite1.Width/2--->Sprite1 Set X to Sprite2.BBoxLeft+Sprite1.Width/2

Just add 3 more conditions for right, top, bottom with appropriate values.

One event with two actions will do:

every tick
sprite1 set x = clamp(sprite1.x,sprite2.bboxleft+0.5*sprite1.width, sprite2.bboxright-0.5*sprite1.width)
sprite1 set y = clamp(sprite1.y,sprite2.bboxtop+0.5*sprite1.height, sprite2.bboxbotto-0.5*sprite1.height)

@LittleStain
The move was perfect it moves the boundary! Is there a way to enable and disable the subject's with drag and drop behavior not move the center of the second object, move exactly at the edges? I could put an object inside and obstacle, but as I will create many objects in the layout I think I can lose performance.

I managed to make the move in the circle, but I would make the same objects with complex contour.

That is a completely different question..

One way might be using a single tiled-background-object for all the borders and keeping the object overlapping that..
I can think of other ways using multiple imagepoints
Really depends on what you are aiming to do..

circle dragging is actually pretty easy as is dragging at the edges of squares..

@LittleStain
Technically, I want to play use the touch screen, skirting the object as if it draws them.
