VB.NET 2005 - Drag & drop between listboxes

In VB.NET 2005 (winform) any sample code to drag & drop items between 2
listboxes? Thanks!

Including, how can I reposition the item in the listbox by drag/drop?

Hi,

I see that no one has answered this yet. I have done some work in this area
but I don't have the time to respond right now. I will respond this
evening, however. Sorry for the delay.

If you don't hear from me by this evening, please email me at
be*****@optonline.net.

Hi,

I've done some work on listbox (listview) drag/drop, but I have to
acknowledge that I have no way of reordering the items as they pass into the
'drop' box. However, I do know a little about this, so here's my answer.

I note that you mention vb .net 2005 specifically: I am not aware of a
difference between it and vb .net 2003 regarding drag/drop, but I apologize
if there are differences and it would be worth looking into.

BTW - MS is almost empty on the subject of drag/drop - a modest intro here
and there, but that's about it (and some of those are incorrect).

In any event, you have to modify the mousedown, dragdrop, and dragenter
events. I have code samples below. However, I have found that I have more
control using listviews instead of listboxes. For the listview to work, you
have to set the listview's view to smallicon mode; the rest is similar but
slightly different (the itemdrag event has also to be altered). I have
actually created a dual listview drag/drop control. If you would like to
see it, just email me at be*****@optonline.net, tell me your email address,
and I will send it to you.

HTH,

Bernie Yaeger
