Drag & Drop using DirectoryListBox / FileListBox

I have a DirectoryListBox and a FileListBox on a form. I am trying to accomplish two tasks:

First:

I want to be able to select a file from the FileListBox and drag the file into a folder in the DirectoryListBox. Obviously it would be a different folder than where the file currently resides.

Second:

I would like to be able to edit the name of the file in the FileListBox control.

Basically, I am needing Windows Explorer type functionality using these two objects. I am using Delphi 3.0 Professional.

Thanks in Advance for any "code" snippets or sample apps.

Plop a DirectoryListBox on a form along with a FileListBox. Change the FileListBox property of "DragMode" to Automatic instead of manual.
 
procedure TForm1.DirectoryListBox1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X,   Y: Integer; State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept := Source is TFileListBox;
  ShowMessage(FileListBox1.Items[FileListBox1.ItemIndex]);
end;

for some great dragdrop components see here:

to rename a file you can use:

RenameFile(FileListBox1.FileName,'THENEWFILE.FILE');

i think the example in the delphi demos directory might do this (delphi\demos\doc\filmanex) directory.
