    I was looking for example on how to disable auto scrolling when trying to do drag and drop. I find that you can do so with  RadDragAndDropManager, so i start looking for it in winform version and i was not able to find that class at all. Is there a way to disable automatically scrolling of a RadListView when dragging from the listview to something else.

    Hello Hugues,

    Thank you for writing.

    I suppose that you need ListViewDragDropService. In its HandleMouseMove method, the service performs scrolling when the mouse is outside the view. You can create a derivative of the ListViewDragDropService and override the mentioned method where you can perform the desired drag and drop functionality without scrolling. You can refer to our ListView >> Drag and Drop section in the online documentation which demonstrates how to customize the drag and drop behavior. Additionally, I have prepared a sample code snippet demonstrating how to modify the service in order to disable scrolling:
    public Form1()
        new RadControlSpyForm().Show();
        for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
            this.radListView1.Items.Add("Item" + i);
        this.radListView1.AllowDragDrop = true;
        this.radListView1.AllowArbitraryItemHeight = false;
        this.radListView1.ItemSize = new Size(100, 40);
        this.radListView1.ListViewElement.DragDropService = new CustomListViewDragDropService(this.radListView1.ListViewElement);
    public class CustomListViewDragDropService : ListViewDragDropService
        public CustomListViewDragDropService(RadListViewElement owner) : base(owner)
        protected override void HandleMouseMove(Point mousePos)
            FieldInfo initializedField = typeof(RadDragDropService).GetField("initialized", BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.NonPublic);
            if (!this.Initialized && ShouldBeginDrag(this.beginPoint.Value, mousePos))
                initializedField.SetValue(this, this.PrepareContext());
            if (!this.Initialized)
            MethodInfo mi = typeof(RadDragDropService).GetMethod("DoDrag", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance) ;
            mi.Invoke(this, new object[] { mousePos });
            this.beginPoint = mousePos;
            FieldInfo fi = typeof(ListViewDragDropService).GetField("dragHintWindow", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance);
            RadLayeredWindow dragHintWindow = fi.GetValue(this) as RadLayeredWindow;
            if (dragHintWindow == null && this.CanCommit)

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
