The PreviewGiveFeedback event enables the source of a drag event to modify the appearance of the mouse pointer, in order to give the user visual feedback during a drag-and-drop operation.

This event creates an alias for the DragDrop.PreviewGiveFeedback attached event for this class, so that PreviewGiveFeedback is part of the class members list when UIElement is inherited as a base element. Event handlers that are attached to the PreviewGiveFeedback event are attached to the underlying DragDrop.PreviewGiveFeedback attached event and receive the same event data instance.
