New Drag-and-Drop?

Without a criticism implied toward RR I whole heartedly agree with  
Richard. Examples of the 'expected' functionality of a command/ 
function/message etc. should come with the code for reference.  
Examples of what else we can do with it is another thing and not up to  
RR to supply.

I for one always look for the example and would love it if there were  
always two examples as in get and put etc. so that I can compare the  
areas I am not familiar with the usage of.

This is timely since I am right now going to be needing the drag drop  
features in my new project.

Thank you,

Tom McGrath
