        Currently on the DragQueryEvent, I am setting the DragCue to just a plain TextBlock.  Once the user moves the mouse over a valid item to drop onto, I want the DragQue to change.  I have tried changing the DragCue in the DragInfoEvent, DropQueryEvent, and

    the DropInfoEvent events.  However, visuals are not updated.

    Hello Greg,

    Yes, indeed the visual is not updated. This is a know limitation which has very easy workaround:

    Set the DragCue to a ContentControl and change its Content instead of setting a new DragCue.

    Another idea is to use a ContentControl and set its content to the Payload and its ContentTemplate to a suitable DataTemplate that will display the currently dragged items and any text you like (which could possibly be bound to a property of the payload).

    Hopefully this will work for you,
