Thanks Richard.  Despite what I said in my earlier email about Thiery's fix for the snapback, you are correct that it doesn't fix it.  Somehow or other, the snapback occasionally doesn't happen, at least in my stack, but most of the time it does.  I think I'll just live with it until 4.6.

I've pretty much got all this working now.  I ended using images of the controls to be dragged not the controls themselves.  Each image has a custom property with the ID of the real control that is to be placed onto the destination stack.  I found I had to do that because all the controls have custom behaviors which were sometimes being triggered when I clicked on the to begin the drag.
