Hiya, folks. I've got a little problem.

I want to check the shortest distance from one object to another. Here's my method:

Let's say I have 1 instance of "Active 1", 3 instances of "Active 2", and the Advanced Direction Object. I start with this:

•Start of Frame
-Set Alterable Value A("Active 2") to Distance(("Advanced Direction Object"), X("Active 2"), Y("Active 2"), X("Active 1"), Y("Active 1"))

Basically that sets all instances of Active 2's Alterable Value A to the distance between it and Active 1.

Here's the thing- I'm not sure how to check which instance of Active 2 has the lowest Alterable Value A. My current method is probably the wrong way to approach this, so if there's a better method, feel free to post it.

Any help is appreciated, and thank you in advance!
