Array along curve

So I'm trying to array circles along a curve such that the centre of the circle remains on the curve path. Whatever I do, the array just doesn't follow the curve. It seems to create it's own similar path..

Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong.

You must put the first original circle center on the first extremity point of the curve! ;)

In the same order of idea take a look at the Scale Array! For have a decreasing size of the circle for example !

Pilou,

Thanks very much. I feel like such a fool :) It's always so obvious AFTER you're told.

No problem Gunter! And just to make sure it's clear - the way that array curve works is basically by moving a frame of reference from the start point of the curve to each point along the curve. In your example there if you drew a line from the center of the circle to the start of the curve, it would then make a lot more sense, you'd see that line moving along the curve. It's sort of like your circle has an offset on the motion of it since it was not on the start of the curve.
