  • This does not seem like a good thing to do - it goes against already established behaviors, and would confuse the user about the actual item that is being dragged. 

    That said, there is nothing built-in to the listview for the capability.  You would need to write your own list control to handle this.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
