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 to various of CodeProject's
The idea was simple: I have an SDI application
CFormView containing a howerver-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 thats how
this articles start.
