DataGrid Drag and Drop

I can't get DataGrid to accept drag and drop
from other sources (it turns into a not sign while over the DataGrid). I *can* get DataGrid to be
a drag and drop source, and I *can* get other controls on the same form as the DataGrid to accept drag and drop.

I am indeed setting AllowDrop to true for the DataGridTextBox, the DataGrid control, and the form on which it sits. I also have handlers for DragDrop, DragEnter, and DragOver.

Any ideas?

I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Do it all manually..changing the cursor, using the mouseup event and some flags to set when the user is hovering over the datagrid with the dragenter.

Neither could I. So I tried it another way. I used the DragEnter event to grab the data (which was plain text from the editor in this case):

Set the AllowDrop to true and add the following code:

protected void dataGrid1_DragEnter( .... )
{
    MessageBox.Show(e.Data.GetData("Text").ToString());
}

This is just a suggestion.  
We need to know the dev environment of the asker.
1. Beta 2 and VS
2. Beta 2 and premium asp
3. Beta 2 and sdk.
Sometimes it will be apparent; but sometimes it will not and there are different answers for each of the combinations.
 
Are we going crazy yet?

I would just like to make sure all the experts ask the question up front so there is no confusion.

It's just a suggestion.

If I only handle external drags and drops, and not DataGrid-originated drags and drops, then I'm not able to do some of the very cool things I wanted to do with my application.

Any ideas?
