I am working on a Javascript simulation where the user would be able to move objects on the screen but I can't find the option that makes the object draggable te same way it is possible in Java. Any suggestions on how I could do that?

The simple harmonic oscillator JavaScript model has a draggable mass.

I recommend you look at the simple version of this model without the graph.  Remember that you must enable the Plotting Panel so that it processes mouse events.  Mouse events are disabled by default for performance reasons.
