Clicking in an unlocked field always activates the text cursor. That's 
how they work.

To allow user dragging, you must first set the lockText of the field in 
a button:

Button script:

on mouseUp
   set the lockText of fld x to true
end mouseUp

Then in the field script:

on mouseDown
   grab me
end mouseDown

on mouseUp
   set the lockText of me to false
end mouseUp
