drag and drop of items between listboxes


S

Hi,
I've done the method described here :
http://64.78.52.104/FAQ/WinForms/FAQ_c87c.asp#q565q

It works well for items added at design time. However if my source list
is filled with a datasource, the items are properly displayed but the
method


private void OnDragEnter(object sender,
System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)

{
if (e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Text) && !isDropSource )

e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy;
else
e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None;
}
doesn't work anymore as GetDataPresent returns always False.

Someone can help ?

Thx

But that's exactely what I'm doing as described in the link I gave
above.
The issue is that it doesn't seem to work with listbox which data has
been loaded via a datasource(in opposition to loading the data at
design time)

Sam,

I would be suprised if it was in another way.

You have told that the listbox uses as datasource. What is probably a
datatable (or a view to it) or a list with is filled with objects from a
special class. Let assume it is a datatable. Than you have told to the
listbox that it has to use from maybe 100 items in the datacolumn colection
a certain column.

You drag one item in it in it.
What should it than do?
Create a new datarow
Give that a primary key (little bit funny when it is not an
autoidentifier)
Set the displaymember to a value
Leave 99 columns blank.

Or had you something else in mind I think that there are endless
posibilities.

The items collection in a listbox is seperated from the datasource. In fact
are it two type controls in one. And you wrote it alreaydy drag and drop of
items.

Just my thought,

Cor

Cor,

hummm.. I don't understand your message, sorry.
My first list is filled with a datasource (actually it's a dataview, to
answer your question ;-)). Then I drag n drop an item to the second
list. To me once the first list has been filled in, the items inside
are just ... well, items ! So I don't see the difference whether the
list has been filled at design time (hard coded values) or via a
datasource, as the content is still text. Am I missing something ?

Ok, I understande. How can I implement drag and drop between two lists
then in that case ? It seems a bit hard and pointless actually as I'm
doing the transfer via double click now and it works much better and
it's more user friendly)

Thx
