This is the code I have in the test application. Maybe someone can spot
something I am missing. I have a button that is the drag initiator and 3
group containers (VGroup, HGroup, Group). It can be copied and pasted into a
new project.


protected function dragButton_mouseDownHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
                //var sprite:SpriteVisualElement = new
SpriteVisualElement();
                var dragSource:DragSource = new DragSource();
                var displayIcon:Image;

                rootDisplayObject = SystemManager.getSWFRoot(this);

                if (useDragManager) {
                    displayIcon = new Image();
                    displayIcon.source = "Button.png";
                    displayIcon.width = 32;
                    displayIcon.height = 32;

                    addEventListener(DragEvent.DRAG_ENTER,
dragEnterHandler);
                    addEventListener(DragEvent.DRAG_OVER, dragOverHandler);
                    addEventListener(DragEvent.DRAG_DROP, dragDropHandler);

event.currentTarget.addEventListener(DragEvent.DRAG_COMPLETE,
dragCompleteHandler);

                    DragManager.doDrag(dragLabel, dragSource, event,
displayIcon, 0, 0, 1);
                }
}


            private function dragEnterHandler(event:DragEvent):void {
                //var pointTarget:Array =
systemManager.getObjectsUnderPoint(new Point(event.stageX, event.stageY));
                DragManager.acceptDragDrop(this);
                trace("DRAG ENTER");
            }

            protected function dragOverHandler(event:Event):void {
                targetCandidate = event.target as FlexSprite;
                nameLabel.text =
NameUtil.getUnqualifiedClassName(targetCandidate);

                /*

                }
                else if (targetCandidate && targetCandidate.parent is
UIComponent) {
                    nameLabel.text =
NameUtil.getUnqualifiedClassName(targetCandidate.parent);
                } */

                trace("DRAG MOVE");
                //nameLabel.text =

            }

            protected function dragDropHandler(event:DragEvent):void {

                        && !("hostComponent" in pointTarget[i])) {
