You can't drag controls from one stack to another, you can only drag 
them around a card. So the trick is to drag a small temporary stack, 
which appears under the mouse, to the target stack, then create the 
control in the target stack and delete the temp stack.

The temp stack used for dragging in LiveCode probably has its 
windowshape set to an image of the selected control, which gives the 
illusion of dragging the control itself.
