Drag and Drop Across CAB Modules

I was wondering if it possible to allow users to drag and drop information from a grid in one of our CAB modules to a grid in another of our CAB modules. I used the standard DragOver and DragDrop event handlers, but they never get called in the destination module.

When I use the same approach in a standard windows GUI app dragging and dropping between two child GUIs, everything works fine. I suspect that the event is not being propogated between my modules.

Any one have any advice on how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

It turns out that the grid's AllowDrop property was set to false. My bad.

I'm now able to drag and drop across SmartParts in different modules. Very cool
