GiveFeedbackEventArgs.UseDefaultCursors Property

Definition

Gets or sets whether drag operation should use the default cursors that are associated with drag-drop effects.

public:
 property bool UseDefaultCursors { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool UseDefaultCursors { get; set; }
member this.UseDefaultCursors : bool with get, set
Public Property UseDefaultCursors As Boolean

Property Value

true if the default pointers are used; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example demonstrates a drag-and-drop operation between two ListBox controls. The example calls the DoDragDrop method when the drag action starts. The drag action starts if the mouse has moved more than SystemInformation.DragSize from the mouse location during the MouseDown event. The IndexFromPoint method is used to determine the index of the item to drag during the MouseDown event.

The example also demonstrates using custom cursors for the drag-and-drop operation. The example assumes that two cursor files, 3dwarro.cur and 3dwno.cur, exist in the application directory, for the custom drag and no-drop cursors, respectively. The custom cursors will be used if the UseCustomCursorsCheckCheckBox is checked. The custom cursors are set in the GiveFeedback event handler.

The keyboard state is evaluated in the DragOver event handler for the right ListBox, to determine what the drag operation will be based upon state of the SHIFT, CTRL, ALT, or CTRL+ALT keys. The location in the ListBox where the drop would occur is also determined during the DragOver event. If the data to drop is not a String, then the DragEventArgs.Effect is set to DragDropEffects.None. Finally, the status of the drop is displayed in the DropLocationLabelLabel.

The data to drop for the right ListBox is determined in the DragDrop event handler and the String value is added at the appropriate place in the ListBox. If the drag operation moves outside the bounds of the form, then the drag-and-drop operation is canceled in the QueryContinueDrag event handler.

This code excerpt demonstrates using the GiveFeedbackEventArgs class. See the DoDragDrop method for the complete code example.

void ListDragSource_GiveFeedback( Object^ /*sender*/, System::Windows::Forms::GiveFeedbackEventArgs^ e )
{
   // Use custom cursors if the check box is checked.
   if ( UseCustomCursorsCheck->Checked )
   {
      // Sets the custom cursor based upon the effect.
      e->UseDefaultCursors = false;
      if ( (e->Effect & DragDropEffects::Move) == DragDropEffects::Move )
                  ::Cursor::Current = MyNormalCursor;
      else
                  ::Cursor::Current = MyNoDropCursor;
   }
}
private void ListDragSource_GiveFeedback(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.GiveFeedbackEventArgs e) 
{
    // Use custom cursors if the check box is checked.
    if (UseCustomCursorsCheck.Checked) {

        // Sets the custom cursor based upon the effect.
        e.UseDefaultCursors = false;
        if ((e.Effect & DragDropEffects.Move) == DragDropEffects.Move)
            Cursor.Current = MyNormalCursor;
        else 
            Cursor.Current = MyNoDropCursor;
    }

}
Private Sub ListDragSource_GiveFeedback(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GiveFeedbackEventArgs) Handles ListDragSource.GiveFeedback

    ' Use custom cursors if the check box is checked.
    If (UseCustomCursorsCheck.Checked) Then

        ' Set the custom cursor based upon the effect.
        e.UseDefaultCursors = False
        If ((e.Effect And DragDropEffects.Move) = DragDropEffects.Move) Then
            Cursor.Current = MyNormalCursor
        Else
            Cursor.Current = MyNoDropCursor
        End If
    End If

End Sub

Remarks

The system provides default drag-drop cursors for different drag-drop operations such as move or copy. If UseDefaultCursors is set to false, it is the responsibility of the event source to set the appropriate cursor.
