    I am attempting to drag a RadTreeViewItem from a RadTreeView to an Image. I've recreated the problem in a clean solution and will include the XAML and CS below. My issue is, when I am dragging the RadTreeViewItem "Drag Me" (x:Name="draggable") over the RadTreeViewItem "Drop Me" (x:Name="droppable") I get an informative DragCue which shows my item and indicates that I am able to "Drop in Drop Me". Upon dropping the item, the treeview's DragEnded event is fired and I can perform any logic required there.
    When I try to drag "Drag Me" over the Image (x:Name="droppableImage"), a block (red circle with slash) appears next to the item and when I drop it, the DragEnded event does not fire. The OnDropQuery event does fire upon hovering over the image, however setting e.QueryResult = true does not alter the behavior. Anyhow, the code below should be fairly self explanatory.

    Thanks in advance.

    <UserControl x:Class="TestDrag.MainPage" 
        xmlns:d="" xmlns:mc="" xmlns:Controls="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation" xmlns:DragDrop="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls.DragDrop;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls"  
        mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignWidth="640" d:DesignHeight="480"
      <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot"
            <Image x:Name="droppableImage" Source="check.png" DragDrop:RadDragAndDropManager.AllowDrop="True" /> 
            <Controls:RadTreeView x:Name="treeView" IsDragDropEnabled="True" BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="1"
                    <Controls:RadTreeViewItem x:Name="droppable" Header="Drop Me" IsDropAllowed="True" /> 
                    <Controls:RadTreeViewItem x:Name="draggable" Header="Drag Me" IsDropAllowed="False" /> 


    namespace TestDrag { 
        public partial class MainPage : UserControl { 
            public MainPage() { 
                treeView.DragEnded += treeView_DragEnded; 
                treeView.AddHandler(RadDragAndDropManager.DropQueryEvent, new EventHandler<DragDropQueryEventArgs>(OnDropQuery), true); 
                draggable.AddHandler(RadDragAndDropManager.DropQueryEvent, new EventHandler<DragDropQueryEventArgs>(OnDropQuery), true); 
            private void treeView_DragEnded(object sender, RadTreeViewDragEndedEventArgs e) { 
                if (e.TargetDropItem != null && e.DraggedItems.Count == 1) { 
                    RadWindow.Alert("DragEnded fired."); 
            private void OnDropQuery(object sender, DragDropQueryEventArgs e) { 
                if (e.Options.Destination is RadTreeViewItem) { 
                    var treeViewItem = (RadTreeViewItem)e.Options.Destination; 
                    if (treeViewItem.DropPosition != DropPosition.Inside) { 
                        e.QueryResult = false
                } else if (e.Options.Destination is Image) { 
                    e.QueryResult = true
                    e.Handled = true

    Hello Justin Young,

    I am sorry for the delayed reply!

    Yes, the visual that appears during DragDrop is a TreeViewDragCue obejct. It can be accessed by the e.Options.DragCue property. There you can assign a drag action / tooltip / items.

    The icon is controlled by the IsDropPossible property. I modified your code to do this, you can see the attached project.

    Best wishes,
