Click-Interactive Panels
Mathematica's symbolic representation of both graphics and controls makes it particularly easy to create click-interactive panels in which the user clicks or drags elements embedded in a fixed overall image.
Manipulate create a simple panel containing Locator objects
Dynamic set up dynamic variables and a dynamic overall display
DynamicModule localize and save dynamic variables
LocatorPane place one or more locators with arbitrary appearances on any image
LocatorAutoCreate option to allow new locators to be created by clicking
Locator set up a movable thumb connected to a dynamic variable
ClickPane respond to the locations of clicks on any image, perhaps dynamic
