I'm still wondering whether this is the right way to go. When
dragging/dropping text in word processing apps, the dragged text doesn't
disappear -- it changes position when the mouse is released. When
reordering a layers in a graphics package (Adobe/Macromedia) the original
dragged layer stays where it is until the mouse is released. iTunes follows
suit as well -- keep the original until the mouse is released. Perhaps the
type of application dictates how this should be handled but so far I haven't
seen any examples of removing the clicked line from the field. Any examples
out there that remove the clicked line when reordering?

Yes, that should be next.

It should be quite doable, but the copying part will be up to you as the
developer. :-) I can make the clicked line a property or variable that you
can pass to whatever object you have.
