Asked On June 7, 2006 11:55 PM UTC

I have custom data that I am dragging onto a diagram and I am trying to get the location of the mouse using diagram.Controller.MouseLocation. This seems to be putting invalid data in the x and y locations for my application. Can somebody verify this behavior in a dragdrop event for the diagram with the latest version?

Resolved with: Dim pt As Point = Me.mainDiagram.PointToClient(New Point(e.X, e.Y)) in the dragdrop event. If Controller.MouseLocation is not valid anymore for a dragdrop then article: http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10566 may need updated.

Hi, Yes, you need to use PointToClient() to compute the location of specified screen point into client co-ordinates the within the Diagram.DragDrop() event method. I have updated the KB article with these details. Thanks for pointing out this one. You can verify the updated KB article using the following link - http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/diagram/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=38 Thanks, Meera.

Dragdrop on zoomed diagram drops object in wrong position.

Modified DragDrop with zoom tool activation attached.

Any work around for this with would be great.

The following code in seems to be working for the dragdrop example. I have not tested it extensively.

Private Sub diagram1_DragDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles diagram1.DragDrop
Dim pt As Point = Me.diagram1.PointToClient(New Point(e.X, e.Y))
Dim vPoint As New PointF(pt.X, pt.Y)
Dim wPoint As PointF = Me.diagram1.View.ViewToWorld(vPoint)

''if this is a bitmap then insert a BitmapNode in Diagram
If e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Bitmap) Then
Dim bmpnode As New BitmapNode(CType(e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.Bitmap), Bitmap))
Dim insCmd As New InsertNodesCmd
insCmd.Location = wPoint
ElseIf e.Data.GetDataPresent(GetType(TreeNode)) Then
Dim treenode As TreeNode = CType(e.Data.GetData(GetType(TreeNode)), TreeNode)
Dim textnode As New TextNode
textnode.Text = treenode.Text
textnode.SizeToText(New SizeF(0, 0))
textnode.Location = wPoint
End If
End Sub ''diagram1_DragDrop)
