Drawing a Graphice Segment

Would something like this work? I set up a pixel sized graphic and have it
follow the mouseloc. Set the visible of it to false so you don't see a
little dot trailing after the mouse, then use intersect to check when the
pixel is over a non-transparent part of a graphic.

on mousemove
   set the loc of grc 1 to the mouseloc -- follow the mouse around
   Repeat with i = 2 to (the number of graphics in this stack) -- the dot
is the first grc
      if intersect(grc 1,grc i,"pixels") then -- cycle through the graphics
and check for intersect
          put the long id of grc i -- if there is one, put the id into the
msg box
           put empty -- else empty the msg box
      end if
   end repeat
end mousemove

I don't recall who to give credit to for this method, but i've seen it in
the forums somewhere.
