Object Type Path to AllowDrag


Use the AllowDrag property to enable the built-in drag-and-drop functionality. Note that 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.

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