When using Drag-and-Drop enabled controls, you can use a public function called calculateDropIndex(event:DragEvent) to figure out where Flex will drop the element being dragged. This method is part of the ListBase class and is overridden for TileBase (which extends Listbase but is the superclass for containers that layout stuff horizontally).
