ToolStripItem.DragDrop Event

Occurs when the user drags an item and the user releases the mouse button, indicating that the item should be dropped into this item.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public event DragEventHandler DragDrop

The X and Y properties of the DragEventArgs are in screen coordinates, not client coordinates. For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example shows how to convert the X and Y properties to a client Point. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripRenderer class.

// This method defines the DragOver event behavior.  
protected override void OnDragOver(DragEventArgs dea)
{
    base.OnDragOver(dea);

    // Get the ToolStripButton control  
    // at the given mouse position.
    Point p = new Point(dea.X, dea.Y);
    ToolStripButton item = this.GetItemAt(
        this.PointToClient(p)) as ToolStripButton;

    // If the ToolStripButton control is the empty cell, 
    // indicate that the move operation is valid. 
    if( item == this.emptyCellButton )
    {
        // Set the drag operation to indicate a valid move.
        dea.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move;
    }
}
