    I have the following model that I populate in the backend (controller):

    public sealed class ItemGroupFlatModel
        public ItemGroupFlatModel()
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }
        public int? ParentId { get; set; }
        public bool CanDelete { get; set; }
        public bool CanMove { get; set; }
        public bool AllowAdd { get; set; }
        public bool AllowEdit { get; set; }

    and then pass to the front end using:


    public JsonResult All([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request, int parentId)
        ItemGroupFlatViewModel model = _finderService.LoadFlatTreeModel(parentId);
        // null all parents that do not exist in tree
        List<int> ids = model.Children.Select(c => c.Id).ToList();
        model.Children.Where(c => c.ParentId.HasValue && !ids.Contains(c.ParentId.Value))
            .ToList().ForEach(c => c.ParentId = null);
        TreeDataSourceResult result = model.Children.ToTreeDataSourceResult(request,
            e => e.Id,
            e => e.ParentId,
            e => e
        return Json(result, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

    My Razor View is defined as:

    <div class="demo-section k-header">
            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Add().Field(e => e.Name).Width(200); //.TemplateId("photo-template");
                columns.Add().Field(e => e.Description).Width(300);
                columns.Add().Width(200).Command(c =>
            .Editable(editable =>
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Read(read => read.Action("All", "ItemGroup", new { parentId = Model.ParentId }))
                .Model(m =>
                    m.Id(f => f.Id);
                    m.ParentId(f => f.ParentId);
                    m.Field(f => f.Name);
                    m.Field(f => f.ParentId);
                    m.Field(f => f.Id);

    I want to be able to control what can get dragged if  CanMove = true and prevent it if CanMove = false.  I want to prevent moving to a specific node if CanAdd = false and allow if CanMove = true.

    Additionally, I want to prevent Delete if CanDelete = false.

    Can this be done?

    Hello Paul,

    This behavior is now possible by preventing the dragStart event. The event will be part of the next internal build, which should be available by the end of this week.
