    Please find the sample project here

    The sample application is divided into two parts:

    The bottom part is similar to the RadListBox drag-n-drop demo with 4 elements:
    1. RadListBox bound to ObservableCollection<Country> CountryList
    2. RadListBox bound to ObservableCollection<Country> GroupA
    3. RadListBox bound to ObservableCollection<City> GroupD
    4. WPF ListBox bound to ObservableCollection<Country> GroupA, AllowDrop unset

    The Drag-n-Drop behaviour is as expected, I can drag n drop between 1&2, but not to 3 or 4, it worked very well.

    The top part is the identical setup, except it is contained within a RadTileView, and there are a few unexpected behaviours:

    1. Cursor no longer change to Cursors.No when drag over list 3 & 4
    2. When dropped on list 3, nothing happens, this is good. But when dropped on list 4 or anywhere on the tileview that's not a RadListBox, the item is removed from the drag source, and not added to anywhere.

    So how do I fix these two issues?

    Hello Wenrong,
    Thank you for the feedback and I'll try to answer your questions:
    - this is an issue in the RadTileView and it will be fixed in some of our next releases
    - the problem is that the RadTileView is also listening for Drop events and that's why you items disappear.
    You can workaround both of your problems with this code:
    private bool isTileViewDrag = false;
    public MainWindow()
        DragDropManager.AddDragInitializeHandler(this.tileView, OnDragInit);
        DragDropManager.AddGiveFeedbackHandler(this.tileView, OnGiveFeedback);
    private void OnGiveFeedback(object sender, Telerik.Windows.DragDrop.GiveFeedbackEventArgs e)
        if (!this.isTileViewDrag)
            e.Handled = true;
            e.UseDefaultCursors = true;
    private void OnDragInit(object sender, DragInitializeEventArgs e)
        var container = e.OriginalSource as RadTileViewItem;
        if (container != null)
            this.isTileViewDrag = true;
            this.tileView.AllowDrop = true;
            this.isTileViewDrag = false;
            this.tileView.AllowDrop = false;
    If you have further questions please feel free to ask.

    All the best,
