AW: missing a basic with drag

yes indeed it is very simple, so I hope it is as simple to keep the grabed
image within a rectangle "foo" while moving. I tried to compare the rect of
my grabbed image with the rect of rectangle "foo" in the mousedown handler
without success, because I can't stop the grab while mousedown. Then I tried
to set the left/top/right/bot of the image to the rect of the rectangle in
the mousemove handler in case my image left the boundaries, what technically
works, but not nice (with heavy flickering, etc.)
Probably there is such an easy answer, but which one?

Additional question: What do I have to do that the user can resize an image?
Selecting the image first, but moving one of the image handles do nothing
happen :( Any clue?

Thanks for coaching!
