Customize dragged and dropped Grid rows

Environment

Product Grid for Blazor

Description

I am using Grid with Drag and Drop functionality to drag the items from one Grid to another. How to change the background color style of the dragged item?

Solution

Do the following to customize the appearance of the dropped item:

  • Use a global variable to store the dropped item. You can get it from the GridRowDropEventArgs of the OnRowDrop event

  • Handle the OnRowRender event of the Grid to set a custom CSS class to the item that is matching the dropped one (you can compare them by Id, for example).

  • Additionally, you can set some custom styles for the drag clue container. The element matches this CSS selector: .k-header.k-drag-clue.

Here is an example. Note that the customized item will match only the last dropped item. Once you drag and drop another item, it will assume the custom styles and the previous one will be treated as a regular Grid item. It is possible to enhance the code logic, preserve all dragged rows in a collection and persist the custom styles for all of them.

<style>
    .k-grid tr.myCustomRowFormatting,
    .k-grid tr.myCustomRowFormatting:hover {
        background-color: rgb(244,97,71);
        color:white;
    }

    .k-header.k-drag-clue {
        background-color: rgb(244,97,71);
        color: white;
    }
</style>
