I have a situation where I need to allow things to be dragged from one TreeList to another.  Additionally, in the 2nd TreeList I need to be able to reorder the items by dragging and dropping.  I haven't been able to find anything yet on drag and drop capability for the Treelist so I was wondering if anyone has done drag and drop of this sort or whether it's supported, etc.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Try the following code snippet to achieve your scenario.

ASPX:
<telerik:RadTreeList ID="RadTreeList1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataKeyNames="EmployeeID" ParentDataKeyNames="ParentEmployeeID" AutoGenerateColumns="false" AllowRecursiveDelete="true" Width="410px" PageSize="6" OnItemCommand="RadTreeList1_ItemCommand">
  <PagerStyle Mode="NumericPages" />
  <Columns>
    <telerik:TreeListTemplateColumn HeaderText="Source" DataField="FirstName">
      <ItemTemplate>
        <table class="templateTable">
          <tr>

Please take a look into this demo and documentation for more information.

Hope this helps.
