Drag and drop sample

Shows how to enable Drag and Drop in a XAML Application.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. If you are unfamiliar with Git and GitHub, you can download the entire collection as a ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

Specifically, this sample shows how to:

  • Enable Drag and Drop of ListView items ListView's Drag and Drop allows dropping information in the ListView, dragging items from a ListView to other targets (any kind of UIElement) or reordering items within the ListView. This sample shows a sample implementation of a ListView using all this features to allow the user to create a list of items entirely with Drag and Drop.
  • Customize the Drag and Drop UI Both the source of a UIElement's Drag and Drop and the target of a Drag and Drop can customize the appearance of the Drag and Drop UI. This sample illustrates the different options for such customization.
  • Start Drag and Drop programmatically UIElement's StartDragAsync allows a finer control of a Drag and Drop operation such as the gesture which triggers it or its possible cancellation. This sample shows how to call StartDragAsync and how to cancel the resulting Drag and Drop operation.

Note The Windows universal samples require Visual Studio 2017 to build and Windows 10 to execute.
