Moving the mouse pointer by script

As Klaus said, screenMouseLoc is what you need.

In my case, I'd like to know how not only how to move the mouse, but to
drag an object via script as well.  Obviously one can set the loc of the
object, but is there way to trick LiveCode into thinking the mouse is down
so that the standard actions of dragging and resizing can be accomplished
as well without having to do those actions by separate script?
