```Gohar,

Below are two solutions with different characteristics:-

First,

plotObject[G_] :=
Locator[{RandomReal[30], RandomReal[30]}, Graphics[G], ImageSize ->
20]

Framed@Graphics[
Table[{Arrow[{{RandomReal[30], RandomReal[30]}, {RandomReal[30],
RandomReal[30]}}],
plotObject[{RGBColor[RandomReal[1], RandomReal[1], RandomReal[1],
0.5],
Disk[{5, 5}, 5]}]}, {i, 10}], PlotRange -> 50]

gives black arrows which can be double clicked to move, resize &
redirect each of them but are not Locators.

Second,

plotObject[G_] :=
Locator[{RandomReal[30], RandomReal[30]}, Graphics[G], ImageSize ->
40]

Framed@Graphics[
Table[{plotObject[{RGBColor[RandomReal[1], RandomReal[1],
RandomReal[1],
Arrow[{{RandomReal[30], RandomReal[30]}, {RandomReal[30],
RandomReal[30]}}]}],
plotObject[{RGBColor[RandomReal[1], RandomReal[1], RandomReal[1],
0.9],
Disk[{5, 5}, 5]}]}, {i, 10}], PlotRange -> 50]

gives random coloured arrows which are locators which can be dragged
but which cannot be resized or redirected.

HTH,

Cheers ... Syd
