The easy way to Reorder your DataGrid/ListBox with Drag and Drop


Drag and Drop usually ameliorate our project spacially on terme of use and simplicity. 

Using the code

First of all , you need to add to the reference the dll GongSolutions.Wpf.DragDrop , it is already unclude on the Project after you downoad it.

Then we add the path of this dll in our MainPage.


After we create our ListBox or DataGrid , we add  attributes dd:DragDrop.IsDragSource and  dd:DragDrop.IsDropTarget="True".

<ListBox Grid.Column="1" SelectionMode="Extended" ItemsSource="{Binding MSPCollection}"
 dd:DragDrop.IsDragSource="True" Width="300" Margin="0,0,5,0" dd:DragDrop.IsDropTarget="True">

After We Bind a List of Object to this Listbox we add two method DragOver and Drop.

Ps: You class should inherit the interface IDropTarget.

void IDropTarget.DragOver(DropInfo dropInfo)


void IDropTarget.Drop(DropInfo dropInfo)



Download this simple example to get the full project ;)
