Listview Drag and drop events

I have a listview that is populated from a database.
I need to be able to drag an item from the listview to a treeview and perform subsequent operations.
Everything works fine except...

How do I determine the text of the item that is being dragged from the listview if the user just left clicks and hold down the mouse key and drags.
I have tried a variety of events but none seem to fire at the right time.  
I am using Visual studio 2008 using .net 2.0 framework.

When you click on listview item for draging the first operation is it selected. so you can get its text as
Dim strText as String=listview1.SelectedItems(0).Text;

Thanks. This only seems to work on the dragdrop event.  That was my problem.
