What I am trying to do is simply drag a control (in this case a button). To be more specific, the button (or element) should represent a "glyph" so when I start to drag it, the button stays where it is, but an slightly tranparent copy of it is dragged to give feedback of what you are dragging. Exactly like what happens when you drag a column in a gridview to the columns grouping dock.

From  what I have read, the Dragmanager is what I need to use? The documenation on this is in the dry style of API documenation that show nothing about how to actually USE it.

I can handle the lower level details of the data being dropped (I hope), but first I have to just do the dragging with feedback.

Any help on this would be appreciated since I have spent the last couple of hours SCOURING this site and the net (which brings me to this site), for an answer/example of how to go about this.

Hi Ian,

Thank you for the question.

RadControls for WinForms suite does not include a general-purpose DragManager. We have a drag manager exclusively used in our Docking component.

You can refer to this MSDN article for further information about the OLE drag and drop operation.

Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.

Best wishes,
Nikolay
