    I have a radtreeview that is a drag source only. It should never accept a drop.

    My properties on the RadTreeView are:
    IsDragDropEnabled="True"  (I need drag)
    AddHandlers for RadDragAndDropManager.DropQueryEvent and RadDragAndDropManager.DropInfoEvent (I added these in a final attempt to consume the event and disallow the drop)

    Despite this, if a node is sourced from the tree view and released onto a sibling node in the same treeview the drop is accepted as a drop/copy and the node is added as a child.

    To be a little more clear: The tree has a single level (i.e. all nodes are siblings).

    If I move a selected node around in the tree NOT over another node and release, the drop is rejected and nothing happens. So far so good. But if I drop over a sibling node, the sibling node highlights. If I release at that moment the drop is accepted and the payload node is copied as a child of the highlighted node.

    As you can see I have taken the programming equivalent of a hammer to try to get the desired behavior and so far have failed.  Is there a correct way to achieve this?

    Thank you,

    Hi paul orsillo,

    In order to disable dropping onto the same RadTreeView, you need to handle the PreviewDragEnded() event:
    private void treeView1_PreviewDragEnded(object sender, RadTreeViewDragEndedEventArgs e)
        e.Handled = true;

    If you choose to use this approach you won't need to set dragDrop:RadDragAndDropManager.AllowDrop property or handle the OnDropQuery() and OnDropInfo() events. Also, the AllowDrop property controls whether the RadTreeView can be a drop target for purposes of Silverlight native drag-and-drop operations (like dropping files on the plugin), which are different from the TreeView DragAndDrop operations.

    Therefore the definition of your RadTreeView can be:
    <telerik:RadTreeView x:Name="treeView1"
                         ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ItemTemplate}"

    You can also take a look at this forum thread, where similar scenario is discussed.

    I hope this information helps.

    Best wishes,

    Well gee, it works exactly as you say.
    That was simple enough.
    Thank you.
