CListView: multi-sel dragging

Posted on 1997-11-11

In my owner-draw CListView, when I start dragging an element (in report view), I create the drag image by:

GetListCtrl().CreateDragImage(m_nDragIndex,&point);

but the resulting drag image includes only the bitmap and not the label text.

Besides this, I need to drag a multiple selection from as CListCtrl. The documentation only refers to a single-element drag (LVN_BEGINDRAG, CreateDragImage, etc..) How can I get the dragging image of a multiple selection?

Tnx

When you drag more than one item then you have to use bitmap which is not associated with any of items on the list ( just keep custom bitmap in resources specially for this purpose and use it index in CreateDragImage() call). And if you really want to move text with bitmap when you do drag and drop then in OnMouseMove() or OnDraw() you have to draw/erase text near of current mouse position during drag and drop.

I cannot have a custom bitmap for multi-sel, as it should be sized to the selection extension. I mean, I need to drag a multi-sel as Windows Explorer does in its right pane.

Concerning the text label, the example MFCDrag does not draw/erase text close to the mouse position, and the drag image is complete...

 Good news is that if you can use CListCtrl::RedrawItem() to paint item(bitmap+text) when it is draged. See mfcdrag sample, file listview.cpp function OnMouseMove().
    There is no function to call to get exactly the same effect as you see Windows Explorer. So you would have to try to use RedrawItem to display drag item(s). Otherwise you have to imitate drag and drop cursor by painting Explorer-like grid by yourseft.
