Is it possible to drag an item into a ListView, TreeView, or List Box container using EndDrag(), when the container is empty?

Is it possible to drag an item into a ListView, TreeView, or List Box container using EndDrag(), when the container is empty?

Problem:

Is it possible to drag an item into a ListView, TreeView, or List Box container using EndDrag(), when the container is empty?

Resolution:

As per the definition of EndDrag(item), an item can only be dropped into logical locations (for example, a folder) in a List box, ListView, or TreeView. It is not possible to drop an item into an empty conatiner, but as a workaround, EndDragAt() can be used as follows:

[-] testcase mytest() appstate none
[ ] dest.SetActive() //destination folder
[ ] source.SetActive() //source folder
[-] withoptions
[ ] BindAgentOption(OPT_MOUSE_DELAY, 0.00)
[ ] source.ListView1.BeginDrag(1, 1)
[ ] RECT myRect = dest.ListView1.GetRect()
[ ] dest.ListView1.EndDragAt(myRect.xPos+1, myRect.yPos+1)

The above testcase uses coordinates, but it calculates them on runtime. Thus, it can be used even if the window size or any other environmental features change.
