Where can I find a good example of doing a drag drop from a datagrid to a treeview control. When I go to the DragDrop event of the treeveiw and try to get the node it always comes back as Nothing. Why is this? Here is the code.

 Private Sub tvMain_DragDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles tvMain.DragDrop
        Dim n As Object = tvMain.GetNodeAt(e.X, e.Y)
        MsgBox(n.Text)
    End Sub

What am I doing wrong?

Can you put the code you use when you start the drag process.

I have done drag and drop from a treeview to another form.
trvresults is my treeview.


Public Sub trvresults_ItemDrag(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ItemDragEventArgs) Handles trvresults.ItemDrag
        Dim line As String
        Try
            If Not trvresults.SelectedNode.Parent Is Nothing Then
                line = trvresults.SelectedNode.Parent.Text & "        " & DirectCast(e.Item, System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode).Text
                DoDragDrop(line, Windows.Forms.DragDropEffects.Copy)
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("An error has occurred.")
            Report.reportError(ex)
        End Try
    End Sub

'***--- on the other page I have this

Private Sub Form1_DragEnter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles MyBase.DragEnter
        Try
            e.Effect = Windows.Forms.DragDropEffects.Copy
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("An error has occurred.")
            Report.reportError(ex)
        End Try
    End Sub

I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but, maybe seeing it in reverse will help you get some ideas.  The trick I found was that when you start the drag drop on one side, it's easiest just to put all the data into a delimited string and then parse it out on the drop.  I really hope this helps you.
