Are you working in delphi 2 or 1?

Can you give more details of what you want to do?

Cheers

Here goes, not the most elegant, but it works.

in the OnMouseDown event for the listbox add the following:

lastpos := listbox1.itemindex;

in the OnMouseUp event add:

listbox1.items.move(lastpos,listbox1.itemindex)

Also, add a global variable for the form:

var form1 : TForm;
    lastpos : integer;

This should do it, you can also change the cursor while dragging if you want to (I'll send info if you want to)

Cheers
