Object Type Path to AllowDrag


Use the AllowDrag property to enable the built-in drag-and-drop functionality. Built-in tile drag-and-drop operations are reflected at the data source level. When a tile is dropped at a certain position, the Tile View moves the tile’s underlying data record to a corresponding position in the data source.

Tiles can be combined into groups by specifying the group column (TileViewColumns.GroupColumn). If a tile is moved from one group to another group, the underlying record’s group field (GroupColumn.FieldName) is changed accordingly.

When you manually create Kanban Groups (see TileView.OptionsKanban.Groups), you can use the following properties to disable and customize drag-and-drop operations for individual groups.

Handle the following events to manage drag-and-drop operations and implement your own algorithm for moving and modifying underlying data records.
