Drag and drop is not trivial to implement. .NET exposes this in a rather easy-to-use method that encapsulates all the native functions, interfaces, structs, and enums/constants. As you can see, though, not every control in .NET supports drag and drop, either. There is a lot that has to be done in order to do this for native windows. There is more documentation in the Platform SDK at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dnanchor/html/anch_WinShell.asp[^]. Specific interfaces and functions to look at are IDropSource, IDropTarget, IDataOject, and DoDragDrop. These are all from the Platform SDK, not the .NET Framework SDK (I only mentioned because a couple of these have similarly named equivalents in both). Those four interfaces and functions - along with the documentation about them - should be enough to get you started.

On a side note, so long as the clipboard formats are supported by both the drag source and the drop target - regardless whether either one is managed or native - and the data is formatted correctly you can drag and drop between windows.

Finally, if you are looking to add drag-n-drop support to your native Windows, first read about the Windows Shell and drag-n-drop interfaces from the link I gave you and continue in the Visual C++ or ATL/WTL/STL forum.
