  • Hi,

    The ListBox is an older control primarily for compatibility with other xaml frameworks. The ListView/GridView has build-in functionality for touch etc. Use the ListView/GridView unless you have a specific need for the ListBox.

    According to Drag and Drop functionality, there are some special events and properties can only be used for ListView/Gridview.

    Specific events available only for ListView/Gridview:







    You can refer to the link to know how to drop and drag items in Listview/Gridview and reorder the GridView/ListView item:


    Best Wishes!
