Remarks

For a MultiPage or TabStrip, Visual Basic for Applications initiates this event when it transfers a data object to the control.

For other controls, the system initiates this event immediately prior to the drop or paste operation.

When a control handles this event, you can update the Action argument to identify the drag-and-drop action to perform. When Effect is set to fmDropEffectCopyOrMove, you can assign Action to fmDropEffectNone, fmDropEffectCopy, or fmDropEffectMove. When Effect is set to fmDropEffectCopy or fmDropEffectMove, you can reassign Action to fmDropEffectNone. You cannot reassign Action when Effect is set to fmDropEffectNone.
