Change drag visual without drag initialize
It would be great to be able to change the drag visual while dragging over certain controls, but when you don't have access to the DragInitialize event.

A sample scenario would be selecting a bunch of files from explorer, dragging over a grid, and the visual providing some information (such as file count, or some feedback as to what will happen on drop).

Hi Michael,

DragDropManager uses the standard WPF drag and drop approach and I am afraid that the Drag Visual is not accessible in the other events except DragInitialize. Furthermore, the described scenario would not be achieved as it's a framework behavior - when the dragged item from the Windows Explorer enters the WPF application the default drag visual is changed to the default WPF one and you won't be able to change the DragVisual in any of the methods of the DragDropManager.
