TreeViewControl.StartRecordDrag Event

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v22.1.dll


public event EventHandler<StartRecordDragEventArgs> StartRecordDrag

Event Data

The StartRecordDrag event's data class is StartRecordDragEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
AllowDrag Gets or sets whether an end-user can drag records.
AllowedEffects Gets a member of the DragDropEffects enumeration that specifies which operations are allowed by the originator of the drag event.
Data Gets or sets a data object that contains the data associated with the DataViewBase.StartRecordDrag event.
DragElement Gets a drag element that is a control on which the drag-and-drop operation has been initiated.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Records Gets dragged records.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


You can use the StartRecordDrag event to cancel a drag operation.

The following code sample allows users to drag only records that do not have children:

<dxg:TreeViewControl x:Name="treeview"
void treeview_StartRecordDrag(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.Core.StartRecordDragEventArgs e) {
    foreach (Employee employee in e.Records)
        e.AllowDrag = !treeview.GetNodeByValue(employee.Name).HasChildren;
    e.Handled = true;
