Do drag n drop in VB.Net in ten lines of code - (too easy)

Do drag n drop in VB.Net in ten lines of code - (too easy)

I was searching through the MSDN documentation trying to figure out how to
do drag n drop and I found a sample program. The sample program did all
sorts of fancy junk like dynamically create it's user controls etc. (pomp -
is it really necessary to be so gaudy when trying to explain a simple
point?) So, realizing the state of the economy and the period of history in
which I was so unfortunately born, I spent the next 3 or so hours weeding
through the affectatious displays of bravado and uselessly flagrant
manefestations of excess (blank lines every where in the sample code - What
does "CONCISE" mean?)

When a people are showing a near complete, generally applicable, state of
chaotic ineptitude something is wrong with the system, though it may look
fine on the outside. Which is why we have UCOM www.UCOM-ISM.com shedding
light on the source of and solution for these obvious yet completely
overlooked social problems.

Anyway; I eventually was able to find the actual code that was necessary to
do drag n drop in VB.NET:

There was 500 lines of code in the sample using a ListBox control!
I was able to do drag n drop in a TreeView control with 15 lines of code?
Protected Sub TreeView1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.MouseMove
Dim sNodePathStr As String
sNodePathStr = LinkTree.SelectedNode.FullPath()
Dim dropEffect As DragDropEffects = TreeView1.DoDragDrop(sNodePathStr,
End Sub
Private Sub TreeView1_DragOver(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.DragOver
e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
End Sub
Private Sub TreeView1_DragDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.DragDrop
Dim oNode As TreeNode
Dim oDroppedNodePath As Object =
CType(e.Data.GetData(GetType(System.String)), System.Object)
Debug.WriteLine("Selected Item: " & CType(oDroppedNodePath, String))
oNode = LinkTree.GetNodeAt(e.X, e.Y)
Debug.WriteLine("Drop Site: " & oNode.FullPath)
End Class
