If TRUE, LabVIEW automatically accepts drops containing the LV_LISTBOX, LV_TEXT, or LV_LISTBOX_ITEMS data types. The LV_LISTBOX data type is a cluster of the array of strings from the row that you drag data, and a numeric indicating the glyph associated with the row from which you drag. The LV_TEXT data type is of type string. The LV_LISTBOX_ITEMS data type is an array of a cluster containing an array of strings, from left to right, in the item you are dragging and an integer representing the glyph index associated with the item from which you are dragging data.

Use the Control events for more control over how users drag items within controls.

This property is similar to the Allow Dropping item on the shortcut menu of a multicolumn listbox control.
