I've been reading about drag and drop for the treeview control and all the examples I see deal with dragging and dropping, I just want to be able to drag nodes that are PDFs.

Is it possible to allow the end user to drag from the treeview control to an email or the desktop but not allow the end user to drop into the treeview control?

Thank you in advance.

Treeview control must have AllowDrop property set to true to be dropped in.
Also, I think the question of how to drag to desktop is probably answered here:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/24718269/Drag-and-drop-to-desktop-or-control.html

If you want to limit the nodes that are dragged you will need to follow the examples MouseMove event code and check for PDF...whatever that means in your tree...if just text name whatever.pdf, then test the text of that node for .endswith(".pdf"), if some sort of object, then handle that accordingly.

Thank you for your reply. I don't want to allow the user to drop anything into the treeview control, I have some nodes that are documents (PDF, doc etc.), I want to allow the end user to drag from the treeview control and drop on the desktop or email but not the other way around (i.e. not allow the end user to drop documents into the treeview just be able to drag out of the treeview).

I know. That is why you set .AllowDrop=false on the treeview. That will prevent anyone from dropping on it. I think it is false by default.
Then you have to handle the possibility of dragging from the treeview control as an event on the treeview control. The link I provided shows you a way to do that and claims to allow dropping on the desktop.

I guess from my comment, "Treeview control must have AllowDrop property set to true to be dropped in." You didn't infer that you set it to false to prevent that.  Go back and read my entire post and check out the link to see if it doesn't help.

Ah yes. Sorry about that SStory. The first part of your reply threw me off. I'll play with it and post another question if I run into any issues. Thank you!
