SelectedLoc uses local (card) coordinates, not screen coordinates. It 
does not give coordinates relative to the field itself though, as you 
said. It doesn't matter where the stack is placed on screen since the 
coordinates are based on the topleft of the card.

I've used it for aligning other controls, like a semi-transparent field 
to simulate "dragging" a line of text.
