The following is an example of a drag-enabled custom control.

<!-- Example template of a drag-enabled custom control.  The 
     DragItemThemeAnimation will be run when the control
     is in the Dragging state.                     
<ControlTemplate TargetType="local:DraggableControl">
            <VisualStateGroup x:Name="DragStates">
                <VisualState x:Name="NotDragging"/>
                <VisualState x:Name="Dragging">
                        <DragItemThemeAnimation TargetName="contentRectangle"/>
        <Rectangle x:Name="contentRectangle" 
            Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}" 
public sealed class DraggableControl : Control
    public DraggableControl()
        this.DefaultStyleKey = typeof(DraggableControl);

    protected override void OnPointerPressed(PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
        // Go to the Dragging state, which will start the DragItemThemeAnimation
        VisualStateManager.GoToState(this, "Dragging", true);

    protected override void OnPointerReleased(PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
        VisualStateManager.GoToState(this, "NotDragging", true);

    protected override void OnPointerMoved(PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
        // dragging implementation here
// DraggableControl.h:

    // Go to the Dragging state, which will start the DragItemThemeAnimation
    VisualStateManager::GoToState(this, "Dragging", true);

void DraggableControl::OnPointerReleased(PointerRoutedEventArgs^ e)
    VisualStateManager::GoToState(this, "NotDragging", true);

void DraggableControl::OnPointerMoved(PointerRoutedEventArgs^ e)

Note that setting the Duration property has no effect on this object since the duration is preconfigured.
