    Hello Lynne,

    Generally, DragDropManager is based upon the Microsoft DragDrop and has been introduced with the release of Q2 2011. You may run through our online documentation for a reference on both RadDragAndDropManager and DragDropManager.

    Hello Lynne,

    Generally, our intentions are to push through the DragDropManager, so I would definitely recommend you to work with it. As it is based on the one of Microsoft, you will benefit some of its functionality as dragging and dropping through different applications for example.

     

    All the best,

    Hello, 
    how can I conserve my already running and fully tested code ?
    what are the transformations needed for a typical application using RadDragAndDropManager for a very long time (AddDragQueryHandler,AddDragInfoHandler ... etc ), to make it running with the new one based on the Ms's one?

    Hello Amine Boussema,

    The only thing you need to do is to set the ExeccutionMode to Legacy:

    RadDragAndDropManager.ExecutionMode = DragExecutionMode.Legacy;

    Thanks for reply, 
    that was the answer for the first question, the second is pending : 
    I am asking about transforming my code running with the old RadDragAndDropManager, to take advantage of the possibility to recienve a drag drop from the Winodows explorer, or from other applications as you had described. ?  If it will not cost me lot of time to implement and test that, then I will migrate to the DragDropManager .
    Thanks in advance.
