PowerPoint Add-In with Slide Drag-n-Drop

    Question

  • I'm currently building a PowerPoint 2007 Add-In with VisualStudio 2008 VSTO that is comprised of a custom task pane that has a list of slides in it. The functionality I'm trying to achieve is the abillity to drag a PowerPoint slide from the "Slides" list and drop it into my Add-In. Then be able to drag any slide from the list in my Add-In and drop it back in the "Slides" list creating a new slide.

    Thus far I've been able to get the drag from "Slides" list and drop on the Add-In working, at least in terms of receiving the dropped slide IDataObject. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to load up a DataObject correctly such that PowerPoint will let it drop in the "Slides" list.

    Does anyone have any experience with this?
