Hi experts,

if I use a own DragImage within a class, derived from TDragObject, then they
nodes are not correctly drawn while I move with the DragImage over the treenodes?
If I move beside the treenodes they are drawn correctly!

I think that anyone is wrong in my use of TDragObject???

Can anyone help me??

I have seen the problem before. The cause might be that you change the treeview while dragging over it. (Selecting or Focussing items).

I think you have to do HideImage then refresh the TreeView (or whatever it is you do) and after that a ShowImage again (I believe those are methods on TDragObject.

Hope this solves your problem. If not you could always try and paste some code so I can have a go at correcting the problem.

Thank you for your fast help!

You take me on the right way, I forget to override these methods in my DragObject:

procedure TMyDragObject.ShowDragImage;

procedure TMyDragObject.HideDragImage;

To refresh the Treeview is not neccesary!
