In Windows 10, we've made it exceedingly easy to add "Drag and Drop" functionality to your UWP application.
As you're probably aware, "drag and drop" is by no means a new feature for Windows applications. For a very long time, the notion for the user to able to move objects within a single application, or between the application and the shell, or even between two completely different applications, has been a familiar and popular mechanism for users, especially when manipulating familiar objects like text or images.
Now in Windows 10 we've not only brought this developer scenario to the XAML/C# platform; we've also made it exceedingly easy to implement.
Today, Shen walked us through the details of a basic implementation. Here are some links to other resources on this scenario:
