Make drag&drop behaviour on treeList same as on treeView
I would like to use drag and drop on treeList to reorder rows (with same parent) like on treeView or at least to have same events (drag, dragstart, dragend, drop), where I'll be able to change behaviour.

Thanks Carl, I'm excited for this feature! Unfortunately with this first pass, it has some reliability issues, which I've gone ahead and posted about here.

Hey everyone!

As a part of the R3 2020 release we updated the drag and drop behavior of the TreeList to mimic that of the TreeView. Head on over to the updated TreeList drag & drop demo to see this in action!

Hello Jacob,

I understand your frustration and indeed, this is a feature that has been asked for a lot and we definitely see the value in it. However, the planning has changed due to some features appearing with a higher demand level.

Nevertheless, this feature will be reviewed on the next planning and soon it will be included in the RoadMap for implementation.

Today, 3/26/2020, this was moved from Planned to Unplanned. I'm honestly surprised and quite disappointed. Syncfusion's Tree Grid supports this feature cleanly and intuitively. Drag-and-drop hierarchical reordering is increasingly becoming one of our most important user actions, so this decision is going to be a major limiting factor for us being able to continue your TreeList.

Hello Alan,

Indeed, this feature request has gained a lot of popularity in the past few months and is currently under review from the Product Management for future planning and implementation. I can not state when it will be introduced but it is a feature that has been worked on and will be so in the near future.

This was last updated in Nov 2019 and is marked as Planned. Is there any information that can be given regarding possible implementation; maybe in one of the 2020 releases?

This feature is already available in TreeView.. how hard is it to clone this functionality into TreeList?

Reordering rows in TreeList is very much needed.

Enable TreeList reorder the  rows under the same parent drag and drop

Thanks for the feedback. Presently the drag and drop behavior supported by the treelist is presented in the following demo:

This was major reason why we evaluated another ui-library over Kendo UI.
