New Drag and Drop Capabilities in WF4.5

One of the coolest operation features that any WF developer will notice is the ability to drag new activities on to the designer canvas without worring how it will fit. Before, if I had a custom activity that did not have a container for holding other activities, you would have to "cut" the existing activity out in order to add it in.

Below demonstrates a simple Exception activity that needs a TryCatch activity.

I can simply add the TryCatch activity by doing nothing more then I should, by dragging it from the toolbox. As I bring the TryCatch activity and hover over the Exception activity two bars appear, one over the Exception activity and one below. The bars help guide the position for the new activity by indicating if you want the new activity placed above or below the existing activity. If I place it above, I get a new Sequence activity, which contains mew new TryCatch and the existing Exception activity.

Very cool feature WF Team, can't wait to show off more!
