TreeView drag&drop

Hi,

I need a TreeView which works like Internet Explorer's "Favorites": when dragging a node over a narrow area between two nodes, it displays a line to show that the dragged node can be dropped to the same level. When moving the mouse pointer further inside the display rectangle of a node, it becomes selected to show, that the dragged node would become the subnode of the selected one.

I checked TTreeView's source, yet I can't see how to do it. :(
Any idea?

Regards,

mmm...so something like this.....

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, ComCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    TreeView1: TTreeView;
    procedure TreeView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
    procedure TreeView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
      State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    Procedure MoveNode(TargetNode, SourceNode : TTreeNode);
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

Procedure TForm1.MoveNode(TargetNode, SourceNode : TTreeNode);
var
  nodeTmp : TTreeNode;
  i : Integer;
begin
  with TreeView1 do
  begin
    nodeTmp := Items.AddChild(TargetNode,SourceNode.Text);
    for i := 0 to SourceNode.Count -1 do
    begin
      MoveNode(nodeTmp,SourceNode.Item[i]);
    end;
  end;
end;


procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
var
  TargetNode, SourceNode : TTreeNode;
begin
  with TreeView1 do
  begin
    TargetNode := GetNodeAt(X,Y); // Get target node
    SourceNode := Selected;
    if (TargetNode = nil) then
    begin
      EndDrag(False);
      Exit;
    end;
    MoveNode(TargetNode,SourceNode);
    SourceNode.Free;
    TargetNode.Selected := True;
    TargetNode.Expand(True);
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  if (Sender = TreeView1) then // If TRUE than accept the draged item
  begin
    Accept := True;
  end;
end;

end.

Well, if I'am not missing something, your code moves the selected node to a new position, but I can't see anything about my real problem: how to get TreeView to draw a line between two nodes, when dragging? Any idea about that? :)
