I have a grid that handles dragging rows. But in order to drag the row the user must first click the row header and release the mouse button to select the row, then click again to drag the row.

How can I make it so that the user can just click and drag without releasing the mouse button?

I think it has something to do with multi-select -- that the grid wants to make sure the user isn't selecting multiple rows. Is there a property that keep the row selection to just 1 row at a time?

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

It can be done done by handling the MouseUp and MouseDown event in GridControl and the AllowSelection must set with AlphaBlend. I ahev attached a sample that illustrates this better.

Refer the sample form below link:

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Do you have an example of this for ASP.NET with the current version of Essential Grid?

Having a hard time with generating a grid with excel like editing and ability to drag and drop rows in ASP.NET.
