View Example: How to Customize the Drop Marker

Specify the DropMarkerTemplate property to customize the drop marker’s appearance. This property defines the drop marker’s template. The binding source for this template is the DropMarkerData class.

The following code sample demonstrates how to change the drop marker’s color and size:

<dxg:TableView AllowDragDrop="True">
         <Grid Margin="0,-3,0,-3" IsHitTestVisible="False">
            <Border Height="6" Background="Orange" BorderBrush="Gray" BorderThickness="1"    
               VerticalAlignment="{Binding Position, Converter={StaticResource dropPositionConverter}}" />
public class DropPositionConverter : IValueConverter {
   public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture) {
      return (DropPosition)value == DropPosition.Before ? VerticalAlignment.Top : VerticalAlignment.Bottom;
   // ...

In the demonstrated code sample, the DropMarkerData.Position property is used to define how to place the drop marker.
