TreeView Component

I am trying to drag a TTreeNode from one TTreeView component to another using the onDragDrop event. I have set the DragMode to dmAutomatic for both components but at run time when I select a node, it seems to picking up the TTreeView component itself rather than the selected node.

So, as soonas I began dragging, the cursor changes to DragNoDrop preventing the onDragDrop event from occuring.

Have, I missed some vital property setting? I am using the standard code provided in the help for the OnDragDrop event, but I can't get the event to go off.

When you set your Drag mthod to dmAutomatic, you'll have to provide some extra code to make the control accept the drag. This is done by this example:

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept:= True;
end;


You will ofcourse have to to this on both TreeViews, but then it will work allright.

BTW: If you are trying to use drag and drop with files, this will need special handling.. then use the components on www.melander.dk, they provide all the functions you'll need for that.
