...I think you should read the documentation on startdrag. It is a movieclip method, and does not take a movieclip as it's first argument. It takes a boolean called lock.
lock: A Boolean value specifying whether the draggable movie clip is locked to the center of the mouse position (true), or locked to the point where the user first clicked on the movie clip (false). This parameter is optional.

Subject: [mtasc] Problem with some native functions
I have a problem with some "native" functions like set or get used in a
class, Also when i call startDrag(this) MTASC say : type error Test
should be Boolean, like it scope on the movieClip function. It's a bit
hard in this condition to build, for example, a window components, where
titlebar call a startDrag on his parent, or I need to, in that case,
link titlebar event to parent function (and in this case it enhance
dramatically the Window class weight).
Here the class witch fail :
class Test extends MovieClip
public function Test ()
startDrag(this); // > type error Test should be Boolean (in
this case we shall use another movieclip instead of 'this')
set("_root.myVar",0); // > type error Unknown variable set
get("_root.myVar"); // > type error Unknown variable get
If Test extends MovieClip, startDrag and stopDrag are accepted, but if
not, I ve got an error like with set or get function.
Is it like MTASC don't know those functions.
Have you a solution for using get and set function ?
MTASC : no more coffee break while compiling
