To Any HTML Element

To drop onto any arbitrary HTML element including standard HTML tags, ASP.NET controls and RadControls, use the HtmlElementID property of the RadTreenodeDragDropEventArgs that is available in the OnNodeDrop event. In the example below, Nodes are dragged down to a standard Panel component with ID property "myPanel". When the OnNodeDrop event fires, if HtmlElementID is "myPanel" then the DraggedNodes are iterated and in this case, LiteralControls are added to the Panel Collection.

RadTreeView Drag and Drop to HTML

using System.Web.UI;
using Telerik.Web.UI;
namespace RadTreeView_Dragging
   public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
       protected void RadTreeView1_NodeDrop(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadTreeNodeDragDropEventArgs e)
           if (e.HtmlElementID == "myPanel")
               foreach (RadTreeNode node in e.DraggedNodes)
                   myPanel.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(node.Text));
                   myPanel.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br>"));
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports Telerik.Web.UI
Namespace RadTreeView_Dragging
    Partial Public Class _Default
        Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
        Protected Sub RadTreeView1_NodeDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.RadTreeNodeDragDropEventArgs)
            If e.HtmlElementID = "myPanel" Then
                For Each node As RadTreeNode In e.DraggedNodes
                    myPanel.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl(node.Text))
                    myPanel.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("<br>"))
            End If
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace
