how to drag cursor in the manner of TListView

in TListView dragging an item would yield a drag cursor in the form of the item caption (when listview is in vsReport viewstyle).

Is it possible to replicate this behaviour on a tlist or any other component ?

Yes, you can write a TDragObject descendant (overriding GetDragImages) and assign it to DragObject parameter in OnStartDrag event.
