I was wondering about how the panel and tabcontrol controls allow the user to drag and drop controls onto them, I'm want to build something alike but can't find anything of use.
Inheriting the panel or tabcontrol class is something I don't want to do, I really want to know how the drag and drop works with the designer.

Also, I'd like to do this with C#.

Thanks in advance,

They handle the various drag events:

DragEnter
DragLeave
DragDrop
DragOver
ItemDrag
GiveFeedback

You can handle those events on any control you want. Here's a decent link:

I'm talking about dragging and dropping controls (from the designer) onto/into my custom control.
