Okay I just checked it out, and the dragMove is not getting sent at all with the pointer tool selected. So I turned on the message watcher to see what messages DO get sent. I found one, but it doesn't get sent until AFTER you let go of the object. Still, it can work for you I think.
Put this into your stack script:
put the selectedobject into theObject
put the top of theObject into myTop
put the left of theObject into myLeft
put the bottom of theObject into myBottom -- sorry it just works out that way.
put the right of theObject into myRight
if myTop < 0 then
set the top of theObject to 0
if myLeft < 0 then
set the left of theObject to 0
if myBottom > the height of this stack then
set the bottom of theObject to the height of this stack
if myRight > the width of this stack then
set the right of theObject to the width of this stack
That is the best I can do. There may be hidden messages that are getting sent during a drag operation with the pointer, but I am not aware of it. This script above will reposition any object that was dragged off screen, even partially to a position touching the edge it was dragged beyond. Give it a try.
