Architectural Detail - Dynamic Block Move + Stretch Actions

I'm trying combine a Move and Stretch Action such that the same handle MOVES the detail UP/DOWN and STRETCHes the detail RIGHT/LEFT while maintaining the base of the detail line at the reference line. Sounds confusing maybe but this is the most intuitive and elegant way to design it. However, I can't get it to work.

 

The attached detail achieves the same functionality but is a little clunky. 

 

Any ideas to smooth it out?

Are you sure that it is the most elegant way?

Cause if I understood the purpose of your block correctly then in my opponion, this might be a more elegant way.

This is what I had in mind... just used your approach and applied it to the other side. (See attached).

 

It seems there are some subtleties at play with the stretch frame and how you include other parameters. What seemed to work here was including the other parameter entirely in the stretch frame.

 

Thanks for the hand.
