Drag and Drop from a User Control to Power Point Slide RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to implement drag and drop from a side panel in addin (my own User Control) to Power Point slide. The typical .NET way to implement drag and drop ( ) seems impossible in this case.

    Can you give me some clue how to implement such feature. Is drag drop even supported in addins?


    PS: I want to drag images into slides.

  • Which version of PowerPoint?

    If it's 2007, then it's not possible. You should find some old discussions in this forum where the MS support folks mention that it can't be done.

  • I am making one single addin for both 2010 and 2007 (infact I am developing for 2010 but it should also work with 2007 as I embed interop types). How can I make it work on 2010?

  • Hi!

    I am struggling with the same problem. Have you found any solutions for 2010?
