DragDrop and the DragDestination

Well I've decided to forgo drag and drop and instead put to and from arrow buttons between the data grids. Drag and drop would have been cool, but I have stalled on getting things to work the way it seems they should, and when you mentioned scrolling during a drag and drop, I thought to myself, this is way to complicated a thing to try and do just to get a value from one list to another.
