Hi Devin

Put your text into an invisible field with it's opaque and showborder false, set the size of it according to the formattedWidth/height to suit. Then import snapshot from control and use that image as the dragImage.

I've worked out the details of dragging and dropping the text, but I also want to have the dragImage be a translucent copy of the text being dragged. I thought I remembered a discussion here about how to do that, but I haven't been able to find it. Has anyone done this? The effect should be similar to what you get in iTunes when you drag song title to a playlist.
