Hello,

we use WinForms-Controls in our application and want to drop a WPF-Control to it (Listview or Panel).

But we don´t get the Drop-Event to it. :-(

In WinForms the DragEventArgs are in the namespace "System.Windows.Forms" and in WPF it is only "System.Windows", maybe this is the problem!?

Another problem: When we use a non-Telerik-form we can handle the Drop-Event but we can´t access the data from e.Data.GetData(...

It´s always null. Is there a way to control the data which is used for Drag&Drop?

Hello, Martin,   

According to the provided information, it seems that you want to drag a WPF control and drop it into a WinForms control. This seems more like a general programming question than related to the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. After some research in forums like StackOverflow and MSDN I have found the following thread which may be useful for achieving your custom requirement:

I hope this information helps.
