The code sample below demonstrates how to change a position of a floating object if is has been moved inside a field result.

function FloatingObjectMoved(s, e) {
    var subDoc = s.document.subDocuments[e.subDocumentId];
    var pos = e.newPosition;
    var fields = subDoc.findFields(pos);
    if (fields.length > 0) {
        var posInsideCurrentPage = function (pos) {
            for (var i = 0, pi; pi = e.pageIntervals[i]; i++) {
                if (pos >= pi.start && pos < pi.start + pi.length)
                    return true;
            return false;
        var fieldInterval = fields[0].interval;
        var fieldStart = fieldInterval.start;
        if (pos > fieldStart) {
            if (posInsideCurrentPage(fieldStart)) {
                e.newPosition = fieldStart;
            else {
                var fieldEnd = fieldInterval.start + fieldInterval.length;
                if (posInsideCurrentPage(fieldEnd)) {
                    e.newPosition = fieldEnd;
                else {
                    // if it is impossible to move the floating object outside a field and on the current page (e.g. if the field occupies the entire page)
                    e.newPosition = fieldStart;
                    e.objectX = 200;
                    e.objectY = 200;
