I am not exactly sure what you need, but I do something similar. I have a locked field "class" where I want to place one of several text options. I have an option button "class" that I reveal wherever I click the mouse down in the field. That button appears at the mouseLoc and I can then select something from it. The selected text is loaded into the proper line of the field. The button disappears. In the field script:
set the loc of btn "class" to the clickLoc
put item 2 of the loc of btn "class" into tLoc
put trunc((tLoc - the top of me) / the textHeight of me) + 1 into tLine
set the clickedLine of me to tLine --remember the line of recent interest
show btn "class" at the clickLoc
click at the loc of btn "class"
And in the option button script:
on menuPick pItemName
put the clickedLine of fld "class" into tLine
put pItemname into line tLine of fld "class"

Try grouping the control and the list field and putting the mousemove handler into the group script?
