Automatic scrolling when dragging over TScrollBox (Delphi)

In my Delphi application I have a TScrollBox with only the vertical scroll bar enabled.

When the scroll box is too small for its contents then the vertical scroll box appears automatically - that's fine.

I would like the scrollbox to automatically scroll up and down as necessary when the user drags an object over it (so they can find the right place to drop it).

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

try this:

procedure TForm1.ScrollBox1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
var calcX, calcY: Integer;
begin
  //calcX, calcY calculate how you want it to scroll
  ScrollBox1.ScrollBy(calcX, calcY);
end;

...or even bettetr use ScrollBox.VertScrollBar.Position something like:

procedure TForm1.ScrollBox1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept := Source is TTreeView;
  if Y < 15 then
    ScrollBox1.VertScrollBar.Position := ScrollBox1.VertScrollBar.Position - 8
  else if Y > ScrollBox1.Height  - 15 then
    ScrollBox1.VertScrollBar.Position := ScrollBox1.VertScrollBar.Position + 8;
end;
