This is an example of how to drag a file from explorer to a TShellListView

unit Unit1;

interface

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

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ShellListView1: TShellListView;
    ShellComboBox1: TShellComboBox;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    FOriginalWindowProc: TWndMethod;
    procedure CopyToFolder(const AFileName, AFileFolder: string);
    procedure ShellFileDrop(var Msg :TWMDROPFILES);
    procedure ShellWindowProc(var Msg :TMessage);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

{ TForm1 }

procedure TForm1.ShellFileDrop(var Msg: TWMDROPFILES);
var
  Buffer: array[0..MAX_PATH] of Char;
  CopyFolder: string;
  Item: TListItem;
  NumFiles: LongInt;
  P: TPoint;
  ShellFolder: TShellFolder;
begin
  NumFiles := DragQueryFile(Msg.Drop, $FFFFFFFF, nil, 0); //get number of files selected
  if NumFiles = 1 then  //this example handles just one file
  begin
    DragQueryFile(Msg.Drop, 0, @Buffer, SizeOf(Buffer));  //get the dragged file
    GetCursorPos(P);
    P := ShellListView1.ScreenToClient(P);
    Item := ShellListView1.GetItemAt(P.X, P.Y);
    if Assigned(Item) then
    begin
      ShellFolder := ShellListView1.Folders[Item.index];
      if not ShellFolder.IsFolder then
        CopyFolder := ExtractFileDir(ShellFolder.PathName)
      else
        CopyFolder := ShellFolder.PathName;
      CopyToFolder(string(Buffer), CopyFolder);
    end;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.ShellWindowProc(var Msg: TMessage);
begin
  if Msg.Msg = WM_DROPFILES then
    ShellFileDrop(TWMDROPFILES(Msg))
  else
    FOriginalWindowProc(Msg);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  FOriginalWindowProc := ShellListView1.WindowProc;
  ShellListView1.WindowProc := ShellWindowProc;
  DragAcceptFiles(ShellListView1.Handle, True);
end;

procedure TForm1.CopyToFolder(const AFileName, AFileFolder: string);
var
  CopyToFile: string;
begin
  CopyToFile := IncludeTrailingPathDelimiter(AFileFolder) + ExtractFileName(AFileName);
  if FileExists(CopyToFile) then
    if MessageDlg('File already exists. Overwrite?', mtConfirmation, [mbYes, mbNo], 0) = mrNo then
      Exit;

  Windows.CopyFile(PChar(AFileName), PChar(CopyToFile), False);
end;

end.
