On a locked field with "list behavior" set and this script in the field 
works for me.  I found this somewhere (can't remember to give credit):

on mouseMove
    put word 2 of the mouseLine into myLineNr
    if myLineNr is not empty and the hilitedline of me is not myLineNr then
       set the hilitedLine of me to myLineNr
    end if
end mouseMove
