Summary0029778: DnD Actions: Using object indices in a switch results in an error
DescriptionIf you add a switch action in DnD and as the value to check you set the "object_index", you would expect to be able to use object index names as Case arguments, however this is not the case and these are flagged as errors and in the live preview code the cases are empty. In GML the usage would be like this:

switch (object_index)
case oPlayer: // do something
case oStar: // do something

But that's impossible to do in DnD currently.
Steps To ReproduceSee the Draw Event of the object oLighting for an example of the error.

Probably means this is fine in 2.2.1, but will assume 2.2.2 for verification.
