Hi, I'd liketo me able to Drag a listview item into a listview Group

for example I have 2 groups, I grad 1 item into the second group

this is what I'm using for dragging.

procedure TFrame2.ListView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
var
  currentItem, nextItem, dragItem, dropItem : TListItem;
begin
  if Sender = Source then
  begin
    with TListView(Sender) do
    begin
      dropItem := GetItemAt(X, Y) ;
      currentItem := Selected;
      while currentItem <> nil do
      begin
        nextItem := GetNextItem(currentItem, SdAll, [IsSelected]) ;
        if Assigned(dropItem) then
          dragItem := Items.Insert(dropItem.Index)
        else
          dragItem := Items.Add;
        dragItem.Assign(currentItem) ;
        currentItem.Free;
        currentItem := nextItem;
      end;
    end;
  end;

end;

procedure TFrame2.ListView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept := Sender = ListView1;
end;





and from what I can tell this is for changing the item to a different group. the below will move the selected item into the second group.

listview1.Items.Item[listview1.Selected.Index].GroupID:=1;



I'm needing that to be merged within the drag.


there is also this function

function MoveListViewItem(ListView: TListView; ItemFrom, ItemTo: Word): Boolean;
var
  Source, Target: TListItem;
begin
  listview.Items.BeginUpdate;
  try
    Source := ListView.Items[ItemFrom];
    Target := ListView.Items.Insert(ItemTo);
    Target.Assign(Source);
    Target.Selected := True;
    Source.Free;
    Result := True;
  finally
    ListView.Items.EndUpdate;
  end;
end;
 
//Move Down
 if ListView1.Selected <> nil then
  MoveListViewItem(ListView1, ListViewIP1.Selected.Index, ListView1.Selected.Index + 2);
 
//Move Up
 if ListView1.Selected <> nil then
  MoveListViewItem(ListView1, ListView1.Selected.Index, ListView1.Selected.Index -1);

Can't you just check the GroupID of dropItem and then set the GroupID of dragItem to the same?
