Drag and Drop, is there a way to start a drag and drop without using the Override function?

I am trying to create a Widget from a Player Controller and then immediately make that widget into a drag and drop, is this possible?

Example: Item is in the 3D world and when clicked/dragged it will get deleted and a widget is created that goes immediately into a drag and drop operation.

I would like to have this action started from the player controller if possible.

I know how to do drag and drops in a widget itself with the override functions, that’s not what I want for this.
