I misStated this completely. The point being that no property of the field itself should be a factor at all, not its loc or rect, for example. Only the Y value of the selectedLine is pertinent.
Glad you have what you need, but I still do not see the value of the selectedLoc. This depends on the loc of the field, and otherwise has no relationship to the field itself, that is, the Y coordinate within that field.
