This article is part of the drag and drop interface samples:
- Serializing ASCII Data
- Modeless child dialog
- Modeless sibling dialog
- The drag source
- The MFC drop target
- The TBTextTarget class
This is a series of articles that has yielded from experimenting with adding some Drag and Drop features to my already-existing application. Due to the complexity of the task, I split the article in several small documents that may easily fit into various CodeProject's sections.
The idea was simple: I have an SDI application with a
CFormView containing a however-you-like filled out
CListCtrl in report view.
The first tricky thing was to use the doc/view architecture with a document file format containing ASCII-strings. Read about that quck'n'clean approach.
Next, I needed to batch-manipulate the data displayed in this control. "So why not use a kind of drag & drop interface with a modeless dialog box and let the user drag the rows he needs into that dialog..." I thought - and that's how this article starts.

I'm looking forward to hearing your comments and improvements.
