An easy to use drag'n'drop framework for WPF.

Supporting .NET Framework 4.6.2+, .NET Core 3.1, .NET 5 and .NET 6 (on Windows)

mainstatus devstatus


  • Works with MVVM : the logic for the drag and drop can be placed in a ViewModel. No code needs to be placed in code-behind, instead attached properties are used to bind to a drag handler/drop handler in a ViewModel.
  • Works with multiple selections.
  • Can drag data within the same control to re-order, or between (different) controls.
  • Works with ListBox, ListView, TreeView, DataGrid and any other ItemsControl.
  • Can insert, move or copy an item into a collection of the same/another control (same item type).
  • Can display Adorners to give the user visual feedback of the operation in progress.
  • Can display a preview of the dragged item (the preview is always visible).
  • Has sensible defaults so that you have to write less code for common operations.
