To create a VB like interface, you will most certainly need to get comfortable with COM Objects and how they work.  The best resource for this is a file called TLBINF32.chm (it's a help file) .  It talks about how to get the properties of dropped objects, etc.

TLBINF32.DLL and TLBINF32.chm are both on your VB CD, but not installed by default.
