dragndrop; i.e. from explorer to my application

hi! i come from vb6 and am wondering:

what happened to ole_drag/drop?

and how can implement dragndrop from the explorer (or any other file list,
i.e. winamp) into my listbox in c#? i've done it all in vb6; strange that
it's so different in c#...

i'm trying to figure it out just now and i sortta got stuck when i noticed
that not even the mousecursor changes as i would expect it to, when i set
"allowdrop = true"; although "dragenter" is triggered...

does anyone have a codesnippet at hand that he (or she) can just cutnpaste?
thanks!

Michael,

Check out the section of the .NET framework titled "Performing
Drag-and-Drop Operations in Windows Forms", located at (watch for line
wrap):

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...operations.asp

Hope this helps.
