If you want to use both the nice Flex Dragmanager in an AIR app, you need to use a monkeypatch to make it work. I’ve taken the code about as far as I can on my own, so I’d like to enlist my reader’s help.

What you can do:
1.) Vote on https://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/SDK-13983
2.) Figure out how the low-level DragManager code works (better than I can) and help work on the monkeypatched code at http://code.google.com/p/andrewwestberg/

What works:
1.) Using Flex dragmanager inside an AIR WindowedApplication.
2.) Using the AIR dragmanager in the same app.

What’s broken:
1.) Using the Flex Dragmanager inside mx:Window. The cursor disappears while dragging.
2.) Flex dragmanager between mx:Windows (not sure DragManager was ever designed for this)
3.) Other stuff I haven’t tested yet.
