ItemDragEventArgs Class

Provides data for the ItemDrag event of the ListView and TreeView controls.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public class ItemDragEventArgs : EventArgs
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class ItemDragEventArgs extends EventArgs
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public class ItemDragEventArgs extends EventArgs

The ItemDrag event occurs when the user begins dragging an item. An ItemDragEventArgs object specifies which mouse button was pressed.

The following example illustrates the use of ItemDragEventArgs when enabling drag-and-drop operations within a TreeView. The Button property determines whether the dragged node should be moved or copied to its destination. The node, represented by the Item property, is then passed to the TreeView control's DoDragDrop method along with a value indicating the desired effect.

For the complete example, see the TreeView.ItemDrag reference topic.

private void treeView1_ItemDrag(object sender, ItemDragEventArgs e)
{
    // Move the dragged node when the left mouse button is used.
    if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
    {
        DoDragDrop(e.Item, DragDropEffects.Move);
    }

    // Copy the dragged node when the right mouse button is used.
    else if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
    {
        DoDragDrop(e.Item, DragDropEffects.Copy);
    }
}

private void treeView1_ItemDrag(Object sender, ItemDragEventArgs e)
{
    // Move the dragged node when the left mouse button is used.
    if (e.get_Button().Equals(get_MouseButtons().Left)) {
        DoDragDrop(e.get_Item(), DragDropEffects.Move);
    }
    // Copy the dragged node when the right mouse button is used.
    else {
        if (e.get_Button().Equals(get_MouseButtons().Right)) {
            DoDragDrop(e.get_Item(), DragDropEffects.Copy);
        }
    }
} //treeView1_ItemDrag
