How to get Data Object during a Drop event in TreeViewItemAdv

I'm trying to get the TreeViewItemAdv object that is being dropped onto another TreeViewItemAdv object within the same TreeViewAdv control, but the DataObject is not being returned by the call to GetData.  tvItemBeingDragged is set to "Nothing" after the call to e.Data.GetData.  Here is a code sample of what I'm trying to do

        Private Sub TreeViewItemAdv_Drop(sender As Object, e As Windows.DragEventArgs)

    'Get the item that is receiving the dropped item

            Dim tvTargetItem As TreeViewItemAdv = e.Source


    'Get the item that is being dropped onto tvTargetItem

            Dim tvItemBeingDragged As TreeViewItem = e.Data.GetData(GetType(TreeViewItem))

    'Do some stuff here with the items


End Sub

Is there another way to get the TreeViewItem being dragged?

Hi Todd,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


You can achieve your requirement by using the e.DraggingItems and e.TargetDropItem in DragEnd event. We have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample under the following location.


Please let us know if this helps.
