Dynamic Calculation of DragImage Hotspot

Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


Have you ever noticed how, when you drag an item from the left pane in the Explorer, the drag image is always created relative to the cursor position? It looks like you are grabbing the drag item exactly where the cursor is. Here is code that accomplishes this. The key is to dynamically calculate the offset between the cursor and the selected image, and use that as the hotspot.

This code is added to the OnBeginDrag method, immediately before the call to CImageList::BeginDrag. Change variable names as needed to make it work in your code.

        // Calculate the offset to the hotspot
        CPoint offsetPt(8,8);   // Initialize a default offset

        CPoint dragPt = pNMTreeView->ptDrag;    // Get the Drag point
        UINT nHitFlags = 0;
        HTREEITEM htiHit = pMyTree->HitTest(dragPt, &nHitFlags);
        if (NULL != htiHit)
        {
                // The drag point has Hit an item in the tree
                CRect itemRect;
                if (pMyTree->GetItemRect(htiHit, &itemRect, FALSE))
                {
                        // Count indent levels
                        HTREEITEM htiParent = htiHit;
                        int nIndentCnt = 0;
                        while (htiParent != NULL)
                        {
                                htiParent = pMyTree->GetParentItem(htiParent);
                                nIndentCnt++;
                        }

                        // Calculate the new offset
                        offsetPt.y = dragPt.y - itemRect.top;
                        offsetPt.x = dragPt.x - (nIndentCnt * pMyTree->GetIndent()) + GetScrollPos(SB_HORZ);
                }
        }

        // Begin the Drag operation using the Drag image and the calculated hotspot offset
        m_pDragImage->BeginDrag(0, offsetPt);

  • Why to count indent levels?

    Simply get the text bounding rectangle and substract one indent. You save the while cycle and the GetScrollPos() call.

    // Get the text bounding rectangle
    if (pMyTree->GetItemRect(htiHit, &itemRect, TRUE))
    {
    // Calculate the new offset
    offsetPt.y = dragPt.y - itemRect.top;
    offsetPt.x = dragPt.x - (itemRect.left - pMyTree->GetIndent());
    }

  • Account for stateMask bitmap in x offset

    UINT nState;
    if(nState=GetItemState( htiHit, LVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK ) ){
    (nState>>=12)--;
    IMAGEINFO ImageInfo;
    //State Image list
    m_ImageListState.GetImageInfo(nState,&ImageInfo);
    offsetPt.x -= (ImageInfo.rcImage.right-ImageInfo.rcImage.left);
    }

  • Taking checkboxes into account

    The following code also checks for state images
    
    (for instance check boxes)

    CImageList* pList = pMyTree->GetImageList(TVSIL_STATE);
    if(pList) {
    IMAGEINFO info;
    pList->GetImageInfo(1, &info);
    offsetPt.x -= info.rcImage.right-info.rcImage.left;
    }
