Hello Ryan Black,
It actually doesn't use the ToString Method. You can see in the first attached project that the Default dragcue finds the Name property in the ViewModel that is bound via DataTemplate.
On the other had, you can play with the default style of the TreeViewDragCue that you may find in the second project.
Feel free to ask if you need further assistance on this.
