QueryContinueDragEventArgs.Action Property

Gets or sets the status of a drag-and-drop operation.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public DragAction Action { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DragAction
A DragAction value.

By default, the QueryContinueDrag event sets Action to DragAction.Cancel if the ESC key was pressed and sets Action to DragAction.Drop if the left, middle, or right mouse button is pressed.

This code excerpt demonstrates using the QueryContinueDragEventArgs class with the QueryContinueDrag event. See the DoDragDrop method for the complete code example.

private void ListDragSource_QueryContinueDrag(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.QueryContinueDragEventArgs e) {
    // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form.
    ListBox lb = sender as ListBox;

    if (lb != null) {

        Form f = lb.FindForm();

        // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form. The screenOffset 
        // takes into account any desktop bands that may be at the top or left 
        // side of the screen. 
        if (((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) < f.DesktopBounds.Left) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) > f.DesktopBounds.Right) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) < f.DesktopBounds.Top) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) > f.DesktopBounds.Bottom)) {

            e.Action = DragAction.Cancel;
        }
    }
}
