About DragDropManager for ASP.NET AJAX

The combination of the new RadDraggable, RadDropTarget and RadDropTargetArea controls allow for giving any element on the page drag and drop functionality with just a few lines of code. Each of this controls can be used as a standalone and does not depend on the others.

The DragDropManager control provides an easy way to declare and reuse settings for the RadDraggable, RadDropTarget and RadDropTargetArea controls. This also allows to create new instances of draggables and drop targets on the fly with no postback required.

RadDragDropManager and 120+ other controls are part of UI for ASP.NET AJAX, a comprehensive toolset taking care of the common functionality of your application, while leaving you with more time to work on its business logic.
