Return Value



Some drag operations support a set of different drop effects. For example, a drag operation that is initiated with a right-click might display a menu of options for the action that occurs when the element is dropped. In the source-only style of Microsoft UI Automation drag-and-drop, no elements implement the DropTarget pattern. To find out the set of effects that can happen when the grabbed element is dropped, a client can query the DropEffects property of the dragged element. This property can contain short strings such as "move", or longer ones such as "insert into Main group". The strings are always localized.
