    Question UserControl Drag to Windows Explorer

    Created a UserControl on a Form in VB6. All in same project.
    I need to be able to drag from the usercontrol to windows explorer to do a file copy.
    I know how to do this with a ListView sitting on a form.
    Even though the UserControl_OLEStartDrag is available, it is not functional. i,e, it does not trigger when a leftmousedown+mousemnove occurs.
    I have seen that this a COM thing that prevents this, but there must be a way to do this.
    Can someone show me some sample code that works.
    I have already got code to raise an event within the usercontrol when a leftmousedown+mousemove occurs, but cannot get the parent form to initialize the dataobject.
    Maybe there is another way but I can't figure that out.
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    DragStart not DragDrop

    I have no problem with DragDrop.

    I cannot get DragStart etc to work.
    I want to drag from the USerControl to something outside the application.

    THis is do-able from a ListView or other control sitting on a form using OLEDragStart etc. but this will not function from a UserControl.

    Anybody else have suggestions?
