Hello,
do you have any example for reordering items in listbox with colomns and rows.
My listbox looks like this:
 <ListBox x:Name="lbImageItems"   
                             dragDrop:RadDragAndDropManager.AllowDrop="True"   
                             BorderThickness="0" Background="Transparent" 
                             Style="{StaticResource DraggableListBox}" 
                             ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource DraggableItemStyle}" 
                             ItemsSource="{Binding Path=DisplayItems}">  
                        <ListBox.ItemsPanel> 
                            <ItemsPanelTemplate> 
                                <primitives:RadUniformGrid Rows="{Binding Path=ItemsRowsCount}" Columns="5" 
                                                           HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" /> 
                            </ItemsPanelTemplate> 
                        </ListBox.ItemsPanel> 
                    </ListBox> 

I found an example in this form for listbox with only one column, but its not working well with my listbox

thank you

Hi Valentin,

I have to reorder items of a listbox which has a button in the itemtemplate of listbox, i.e. listbox will contain buttons as items.
The link you specified provide me the solution and I implemented it. Although it is working fine but when we have listbox in a Popup control then it doesn't work correctly. When we put listbox in Popup control it doesn't allow to reorder the items and when we put listbox outside the Popup control it allows to reorder the items.

Please provide me a solution, so that I can reorder the items of listbox, when listbox is put in Popup control.

Thanks & Regards
Nitin Joshi

Hello Nitin Joshi,

This happens because the DragDropManager only searches visual trees it knows about. Normally Popups open in a separate visual tree and their roots need to be "registered" for the DragDrop to work.

More info here:

http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/telerik.windows.controls-telerik.windows.controls.dragdrop.dragdropoptions-participatingvisualroots.html

http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/drag-and-drop/drag-amp-drop-works-except-inside-a-popup.aspx

http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/raddraganddrop-child-window-non-telerik-popups.html

Please note that some of the information above refers to "Silverlight" but since the controls have a common API / behavior is just as applicable in this case as well.

Kind regards,
Miroslav

The example provided by you (http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/raddraganddrop-within-listbox.html) breaks ListBox items virtualization. Can you help to me to solve this problem?

Hello, Tsvyatko,

I modified your project that would be visible a problem. On the right in a window with ListBox it is possible to see that if to use your example all data of elements is loaded at once at tree loading. If an example not to use, the data for visible elements is loaded only. For us it is critical, as the data at us it is images.

I cannot attach project to the post, so here link to it: http://depositfiles.com/files/6bw4z9pa1

Hello Scott Shuppert,

We have check the attachment and found that inserting visual elements within the scrollviewer of the listbox affects its virtualizing panel. The solution in this case is to move the visual drop indicator by editing the custom listbox template . Please, check the attachment for reference. Thank you for pointing this out, we will update this in our article.
I have also updated your telerik points as well.

Thanks! It works.

But I all the same do not like your approach to ListBox drag'n'drop implementation. It is too much actions by hands it is necessary to make. It is better to use more end-to-end solution, as, for example, here: http://code.google.com/p/gong-wpf-dragdrop/. I think that you should implement something similar in RadDragAndDropManager.
