I'm enhancing the behaviour of out of the box WF designer drag/drop experience. One of the things I'm trying to do (in part) is when a toolbox item is drag over an existing activity designer and then dropped, I want the toolbox item's activity to
be dropped close to the activity designer on which it was to be dropped, but not directly on top of the designer.
To accomplish this, I detect when a drop operation is about to occur and then I attempt to move the cursor position next to the activity designer. The problem I'm having is moving the cursor during the drop operation. I've tried various ways
to do this programmatically, but nothing seems to work. Or, perhaps it is getting moved but then the workflow designer (and in particular the flowchart designer) does something special with mouse position or otherwise ignores it.
I started out posting this question on the
WPF forum, but now I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps there is something unique to the WF/flowchart designer that's causing the mouse not to move (or to move back to the original position perhaps) rather than a general issue with moving the mouse
during drag/drop operations.
Can anyone provide any guidance?
