Turn ON\OFF Drag and Drop

Reported by: Rock Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: drag drop treeview scrolling Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP Pro


The drag and drop functionality has more often than not misfired and caused an unwanted move. The other issue I have is that when an unwanted move does happen, moving that file back up to the proper directory requires that I set the screen resolution to microsopic size because the mouse does not trigger a move of the directory treeview control.

So to sum this up:

  1. Turn On\Off drag-drop functionality in the client to stop unwanted moves.
  2. Add in scrolling support for the treeview controls when the mouse cursor reaches the edge to better support file movement.

There's an option somewhere in Windows to change the distance needed for the mouse pointer to move while holding down a mouse button before the drag starts. Simply set that value high enough, no more misfire.

I think you're referring to the "click-lock" feature under the mouse in the control panel. Tablet PC Windows versions has option for distance activation, but that's it. I looked up and down for issues and resolutions before opening the ticket.

I can however assure you that this IS an issue, but it doesn't happen all the time. What I have noticed is that it only happens in the Server's Treeview control. Unfortunately, FileZilla is the only app I have experienced this with because it's the only app I use that has a file manager type function on a remote machine.

I've built enough applications to know that there are enough potential issues to warrant some sort of option when a problem is sporadic. To name a few that CAN cause this type of issue:

  1. Internet Connection Stability
  2. Wireless Mice
  3. Slow or unreliable hardware

It's also not limited to just Windows;

I'll increase this and see if I encounter the move effect.
