Currently not working right in FileMaker 13. Better just put image in layout where you plan to put the drag area.

Added Windows support for MBS Plugin 8.1. Please use picture without alpha channel.
Image is scaled to viewing area, so best make sure you have exactly two times the pixels in the image relative to size of the control.
