The DragDrop Manager in Telerik for WPF offers and intuitive API to enable native drag and drop behavior in WPF applications for a better user experience and faster interactions with specific application items.
The Drag-drop framework in Telerik UI for WPF enables the use of a wide set of events to handle the drag and drop actions performed by end users. By using events, you can customize the drag and drop interactions based on your application’s logic, which translates to more flexibility for the application’s users. These apply both to the drag source and drop target, which use a standard set of events to handle the operations.
The built-in logic also enables end users to drag items over from tabs or lists seamlessly.
The manager utilizes a drag visual element to follow the mouse in drag in drop interactions, which shows exactly where the item(s) is being moved and assists the user while reordering items. The element can be customized based on the design and specifications of your application.
To prevent the cases of accidental or unwanted drag action by the end user, you can use the drag threshold functionality, by setting the minimum vertical and horizontal distance, which triggers the drag operation.
