Description Alan McGovern 2012-05-04 09:14:16 UTC
protected override void OnDragDrop (DragEventArgs args)
	var location = args.Position;
	var scene = this.GetItemAtPosition (args.Position.X, args.Position.Y);
	if (scene != null)
		location = location.Offset (-scene.Allocation.X, -scene.Allocation.Y);
	var str = args.Data.GetValue<string> ();
	Session.LoadXml (str, WindowToWorldPoint (location), null);
	args.Success = true;

I placed a breakpoint on Session.LoadXml and tried to invoke "WindowToWorldPoint (location)" in the immediate window. The definition of this method is:

protected Point WindowToWorldPoint (Point windowPoint)
	return new Point (windowPoint.X + hScroll.Value, windowPoint.Y + vScroll.Value);

However this gives me the exception:

Can't invoke an instance method from a static method.

If i write "this.WindowToWorldPoint (location)" in the immediate window, it works perfectly.
