Building a Board Game

What I do is to make a grid of named rectangles (they may or may not be visible). I put the names of these into a variable or an array. On mouseUp I traverse the variabel/array to check if the mouseLoc is within any of the rectangles. When there is a match I set the loc of the grabbed control to the loc of the matching rectangle.
