Description Nathan Fiedler 2006-06-16 23:08:19 UTC
The TreeView derivatives allow reordering the children of a node using drag and
drop, but the ListView lacks this important feature. The users of EntPack need
to use the kludgy "reorder" action dialog instead of the natural drag-n-drop
technique for reordering nodes.

In particular, the TreeView indicates, by drawing a thin black line, where a
node will be dropped between two other nodes. This allows for easy reordering of
the nodes. ListView always assumes that the drop will occur inside another node,
not between nodes.
