Hello, I'm just wondering if this is possible out of the box through a setting. We want the user to be able to press Esc while dragging an object and have that cancel the dragging, just like in the Windows Explorer.

Thanks.

Actually I do... I replicated the code in a simplistic example and it works there, so I'm not really sure what's going on. Unfortunatelly I can't send you the project where it doesn't work as it is too big and it uses many other 3rd party resources. I'll try to find out what's going on. If you have an idea of what could cause the Esc to not work, please let me know so I could base my search on that.

Thanks.

Hello Lauren Nickerson,

Is there any chance that in your scenario the treeview is loosing the focus while you are dragging. If the focus is lost the keydown will not be handled and thus the Esc. key will not work.

Hi,

If the treeview does lose focus while the drag is in progress is it possible to cancel the delete? The current behaviour appear like a bug to the users.

Cheers,
Dan

Hello Daniel,

For this particular scenario, you can attach to the LostFocus event of the TreeView and cancel the drag in there. One detail you have to keep in mind is to cancel the drag only of the newly focused element is not a child of the TreeView.

private void RadTreeView_LostFocus(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    FrameworkElement focusedElement = FocusManager.GetFocusedElement() as FrameworkElement;
    RadTreeView parentTreeView = focusedElement.ParentOfType<RadTreeView>();
    if (parentTreeView == null)
    {
        RadDragAndDropManager.CancelDrag();
    }
}

I am attaching a sample project for further reference. Let me know if this an acceptable solution for your scenario.

Best wishes,

Hi,
I want to cancel Drag & Drop on "ESC" key press, But i am losing focus on from the tree control. I don't know the reason of losing focus. Even i am unable to set the focus on Tree control in OnDropQuery Event. I capture the lostFocus Event of tree control and it is invoked when i change the selected the Tree Item.

Hi Balaram Barange,

If press ESC while dragging from RadTreeView the drag is canceled and the focus stays on the RadTreeView. Can you please send us example project demonstrating your problem?

All the best,

Hi,
I am dragged item inside the tree i.e. RadTreeViewItem. So focus is on RadTreeViewItem. RadTreeView's IsFocused property is false.

Thanks

Hi Balaram Barange,

Can you please find the attached example. Even when the RadTreeView is loosing the focus pressing the Esc still works and the dragging is Canceled for both examples with RadTreeView and ListBox.
The FocusLost is raised in the meantime of changing the selected item (the TreeView just gets the focus after the current selected item loses it and after that the newly selected gets the focus, so the TreeView loses it) . The only focused visual element in the focus scope is RadTreeViewItem (the selected one), that's why the TreeView iteself can't be focused too.
Can you please reproduce your problem and send us back the example, so we can examine it?

Kind regards,
Miro Miroslavov

When we press Esc while dragging what event and where we will get so that I can handle the cancel.

As when start dragging am setting some property and if user press ESC want to reset those but am not getting any event.

Also is there a way to remove the Esc option.

Hello Shashank,

You can subscribe to the QueryContinueDrag event of the RadTreeView. You can use the EscapePressed to check if the Esc button is pressed. But keep in mind that still, the default behavior which is canceling the dragging while this button is pressed can be overridden.
