TileContainer.StartItemDragging Event

Occurs whenever an end-user starts dragging a TileContainer‘s tile.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking2010.Views.WindowsUI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public event TileItemDragEventHandler StartItemDragging

Event Data

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

Property Description
Cancel Gets or sets a value indicating whether the event should be canceled. Inherited from CancelEventArgs.
Item Gets or sets a tile item that fired an event which takes the TileItemDragEventArgs object as a parameter.
TargetGroup Gets the TileGroup to which a TileItem being dragged is about to be placed.


The StartItemDragging event is used to completely prohibit individual tiles (e.Item) from dragging. To do so, set the e.Cancel parameter to true.

The e.TargetGroup parameter is always null, since the StartItemDragging event is raised when the dragging has just begun. In order to check to which group an end-user wants to drag a tile, and if necessary, cancel this action, handle the TileContainer.EndItemDragging event instead.
