Examples

This code excerpt demonstrates using the QueryContinueDragEventArgs class with the QueryContinueDrag event. See the DoDragDrop method for the complete code example.

void ListDragSource_QueryContinueDrag( Object^ sender, System::Windows::Forms::QueryContinueDragEventArgs^ e )
{
   // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form.
   ListBox^ lb = dynamic_cast<ListBox^>(sender);
   if ( lb != nullptr )
   {
      Form^ f = lb->FindForm();

      // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form. The screenOffset
      // takes into account any desktop bands that may be at the top or left
      // side of the screen.
      if ( ((Control::MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) < f->DesktopBounds.Left) || ((Control::MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) > f->DesktopBounds.Right) || ((Control::MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) < f->DesktopBounds.Top) || ((Control::MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) > f->DesktopBounds.Bottom) )
      {
         e->Action = DragAction::Cancel;
      }
   }
}
private void ListDragSource_QueryContinueDrag(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.QueryContinueDragEventArgs e) {
    // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form.
    ListBox lb = sender as ListBox;

    if (lb != null) {

        Form f = lb.FindForm();

        // Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form. The screenOffset
        // takes into account any desktop bands that may be at the top or left
        // side of the screen.
        if (((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) < f.DesktopBounds.Left) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) > f.DesktopBounds.Right) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) < f.DesktopBounds.Top) ||
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) > f.DesktopBounds.Bottom)) {

            e.Action = DragAction.Cancel;
        }
    }
}
Private Sub ListDragSource_QueryContinueDrag(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As QueryContinueDragEventArgs) Handles ListDragSource.QueryContinueDrag
    ' Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form.
    Dim lb as ListBox = CType(sender, System.Windows.Forms.ListBox)

    If (lb isNot nothing) Then

        Dim f as Form = lb.FindForm()

        ' Cancel the drag if the mouse moves off the form. The screenOffset
        ' takes into account any desktop bands that may be at the top or left
        ' side of the screen.
        If (((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) < f.DesktopBounds.Left) Or _
            ((Control.MousePosition.X - screenOffset.X) > f.DesktopBounds.Right) Or _
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) < f.DesktopBounds.Top) Or _
            ((Control.MousePosition.Y - screenOffset.Y) > f.DesktopBounds.Bottom)) Then

            e.Action = DragAction.Cancel
        End If
    End if
End Sub

Remarks

By default, the QueryContinueDrag event sets Action to DragAction.Cancel if the ESC key was pressed and sets Action to DragAction.Drop if the left, middle, or right mouse button is pressed.
