The following properties accept/return MoveType values:


To move an item to a specific position via code an LayoutItemDragController object should be created and passed to the BaseLayoutItem.Move method. The drag controller’s settings specify the processed layout item and the position to which it must be moved. This includes:

  • the target layout item before or after which the processed item is inserted;
  • whether the item is inserted before or after the target item;
  • whether the item is inserted inside or outside the target item, etc.

The values listed by the MoveType enumeration are used to specify whether the item is inserted inside or outside the specified item.
