If I do a RadTreeView.DoDragDrop in the MouseDown event, the DoubleClick Event never fires.  Is there a way to begin Drag and Drop in MouseDown, and still get the DoubleClick event?  Basically, if it's a DoubleClick, I don't need the MouseDown event, because there is no need to have started the Drag and Drop.

Hello, Terry,  

The MouseDown event is expected to be fired before the DoubleClick event which needs a second click. Then, if the drag and drop operation is already started, it is normal that the DoubleClick event wouldn't be fired while the drag operation is ongoing. I believe that a similar behavior is observed with the Microsoft TreeView.

The possible solution that I can suggest is to start the drag and drop operation at a later moment, e.g. in the MouseMove event. Thus, you can check whether the left mouse button is pressed and determine whether to start the drag operation:
        private Point mouseDownPosition;
        private void RadTreeView1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        { 
            var node = radTreeView1.ElementTree.GetElementAtPoint(mouseDownPosition) as TreeNodeElement;

           
            if (node != null&& e.Button == MouseButtons.Left&&  IsRealDrag(mouseDownPosition, e.Location))
            { 
                radTreeView1.DoDragDrop(node.Data.Text, DragDropEffects.Copy); 
            }
        }
        private static bool IsRealDrag(Point mousePosition, Point initialMousePosition)
        {
            return (Math.Abs(mousePosition.X - initialMousePosition.X) >= SystemInformation.DragSize.Width) || 
                (Math.Abs(mousePosition.Y - initialMousePosition.Y) >= SystemInformation.DragSize.Height);
        }
        private void RadTreeView1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        { 
            this.mouseDownPosition = e.Location;
        }
I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
