Hey Sebastian,

in my Bachelor Thesis, I do something like that this way:

html div id: myID;
   onMouseOver: (html draggable
     onEnd: (html request
       callback: [:value |
	self updatePositionOf: aPassenger with: value.]
	(html element id: myID) positionedOffset));

where value is a String in the form (x,y).
