    Question Drag and Drop with Web Grids

    Does anyone have any advice, methods, techniques for drag and drop within or between web grids?
    We have been assured is is possible, but the help doesn't make it clear how you do it.

    Regards

    This would be really nice, then we could have two lists/grids next to each other and the user could drag and drop elements from the left list to the right list and vice versa.

    This already has a nice spot on our wish list. I'll log this renewed request for this feature.

    in general drag and drop should be something to look into. We have a number of custom controls and some of them do drag and drop and we had to fight DAWs drop target handler to make it work

    Thanks Harm!

    We think we remember Nick demonstrating this working 2 years ago (ish?)
    - and said he developed it within a day with his limited programming skills (so anyone could do it)
    - was it a bit early to get us excited on this ?
    - or does he know something that we dont ?

    Within a day you certainly can make something draggable, but designing and implementing a generic reusable drag 'n drop API for the web framework will take some more time. Sounds like what was shown is a custom control for a specific project and not a generic framework feature...

    Thanks Harm!

    It's good news we can make grids draggable on a project by project basis, could you offer any advice on the best way to do this?

    Kind regards

    Thanks for the advice Harm,

    Are you saying there is nothing, no free advice at all you can offer to the users on the forum?

    As you admitted earlier, this feature is on the wishlist, and you guys know how to do it.
    It is something that a lot of people may like to do when moving applications from Windows (which currently does this) to the Web (which currently doesn't).
    So you would be offering a work around for something that probably should have been there from the start.

    If web grids are more difficult that web lists, then please at least some advice on web list drag and drop would be helpful.

    Kind regards,
