Hi William,

This should do the trick you want:

local lAllowDrag
on mouseDown
   set cursor to 28
   lock cursor
   set the layer of me to 100
   set the dragdata["text"] to the short name of the target
   put the (mouseH - the left of me) & comma & (the mouseV - the top  
of me) into lAllowDrag
end mouseDown
on dragMove x,y
   if lAllowDrag is empty then exit dragMove
   set the topLeft of me to (x - item 1 of lAllowDrag) & comma & (y -  
item 2 of lAllowDrag)
   if the mouse is up then
     put empty into lAllowDrag
     unlock cursor
   end if
end dragMove
on mouseEnter
   put empty into lAllowDrag
end mouseEnter
