Good question.  I wasn't thinking that far ahead yet.  See, in windows you can capture the mouse messages so that a form is getting those messages at all times, whether the mouse is within the control or not.  In linux, I'm not sure how to do that yet.  If I could then I would simply watch for the MouseUp and see if I was dragging.  If so then I would get the data of the item I was dragging and send a DRAGDROP signal to the target window.

I am not that well versed with the drap and drop yet though so I will have to look into this a bit further.

In regards to Sam and FEdit, have we heard from him lately?  I'm interested in whether he wants to use FEdit to do the form designer and Object Inspector.  I certainly don't want to tackle those at this time.  :-)
