I have an Image that I display a text over it. Current I have 3 pre-defined area where I can select to display text over image.

I'm trying to make it more dynamic and allow me to put the mouse over the image and drag to make the current area I need and save the data.

Does anyone know a JS that will allow me to drag and drawn a box over the image and get the Top, Left, Width and Height.
