    We have implemented drag-drop feature for the trees in our application - when we are dropping to destination tree node it shows "Drop after <destination-node>", "Drop before <destination-node>" and "Drop in <destination-node>" message - but we need that it always behaves like Drop in meaning if user is dropping in any node in between child-nodes of any parent node - the message should not read "Drop before <destination-node>" or "Drop after <destination-node>" instead it should read "Drop in <parent-node>"

    For example - if we have a parent node say P and there are child node say C1,C2,C3,C4 and now if we are dropping any node between C2 and C3 - it will say either "Drop before C3" or "Drop after C2" - but instead we want to show "Drop in P". We tried using TextDropAfter and TextDropBefore property - but this can only set the message to "Drop in" and thus "Drop before <destination-node>" and "Drop after <destination-node>" will read "Drop in <destination-node>" but we intend to show "Drop in <parent-node>".

    Please let know how to achieve this.

    Hi Balaram Barange,

     This requirement cannot be implemented out of the box. You will have to create your own custom DragCue and change it dynamically using the RadDragAndDropManager events. Please let us know if you need more info on this.
