What's wrong with this code?

I'm using Tumult Hype which is an HTML 5 animation tool, and I want to create a drag and drop element that when dropped into another element initiates an animation.

I've followed instructions from this page: http://tumult.com/hype/documentation/javascript/

And have come up with the following code which for some reason isn't working:

function dragdrop(hypeDocument, element, event) { var drag = hypeDocument.getElementById('drag') var drop = hypeDocument.getElementById('drop')

if (event['hypeGesturePhase'] == hypeDocument.kHypeGesturePhaseMove) {

if (drag.offsetLeft > drop.offsetLeft && drag.offsetTop > drop.offsetTop && drag.offsetLeft + drag.offsetWidth < drop.offsetLeft + drop.offsetWidth && drag.offsetTop + drag.offsetHeight < drop.offsetTop + drop.offsetHeight) {


The variables were created using Unique Element IDs within the Hype document which I have checked multiple times and are correct. And the timeline that I wish to start once the drag element has been dropped into the drop element is called 'Ani' which you can see in the third to last line of code.

I'm very new to Javascript and am struggling to get to grips with it so would appreciate any help anyone can provide.
