    Drag and drop in WinAPI

    Anybody know how to do this in API?
    I can't imagine that i have to subclass and capture mousedown/up messages..?
    That's what i've come up with until now...I can't seem to find any WM_ messages regarding this.

    Thanks. I'll try that.
    It doesn't seem to be what i need though...I'm gonna drag items from one listview to another on the same form.

    Well there's DragDetect() if that's what you need.
