Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItemCancelEventArgs OnRowDropping Property

To get or set property values for client API properties, you must call property accessor methods that are named with the get_ and set_ prefixes. For example, to get or set a value for a property such as cancel, you call the get_cancel or set_cancel.

This event should be attached to identify the target element on which the dragged grid record is dropped. If this element does not meet your criteria for acceptable target, cancel the operation by setting args.set_cancel(true) where args is the second argument passed to the OnRowDropping handler. Additionally, to determine the destination element or set it explicitly use the get_destinationHtmlElement() and set_destinationHtmlElement() properties that can be accessed through the args argument in the handler.

Fired by RadGrid
Arguments targetItemId - the ClientID of the target dataItem targetItemIndexHierarchical - the hierarchical index of the target GridDataItem targetGridDataItem - the dataItem over which the user is dropping.
