Eugene helped me out with this one and gave me some working code :)

In case anyone reading this forum is looking for a similar solution, here's
all the code you should need to achieve this.    You'll need to create a
page with a container div called 'image-area' and which contains a smaller
div called 'viewport'...  Tested with v1.1.1:

			dojo.addOnLoad(function() {
			    var parent = dojo.byId("image-area");
			    var moveIt = new dojo.dnd.move.parentConstrainedMoveable("viewport",
			        within: true
			    dojo.connect(parent, "onmouseenter",
			    function(e) {
					var viewport = dojo.byId("viewport");
					dojo.style("viewport", {top: (e.clientY -
viewport.clientHeight/2)+'px', left: (e.clientX -
			        moveIt._mover = new moveIt.mover(moveIt.node, e, moveIt);
			    dojo.connect(parent, "onmouseleave",
				function(e) {
					if (moveIt._mover) {
					//	console.log('destroying..')
						delete moveIt._mover;
