    Hi Vinoth,

    I would suggest you to try using C1DragDropManager and handle its DragLeave event. Below is sample code snippet for same.
    C1DragDropManager dd = new C1DragDropManager();
    foreach (UIElement e in _docktab1.Items)
    dd.RegisterDragSource(e, DragDropEffect.Move, ModifierKeys.None);
    foreach (UIElement e in dockControl.Items)
    dd.RegisterDropTarget(e, true);
    dd.RegisterDragSource(_docktab1, DragDropEffect.Move, ModifierKeys.None);
    dd.DragLeave += Dd_DragLeave;
    private void Dd_DragLeave(object source, DragDropEventArgs e)
    var dragSource = e.DragSource as C1.WPF.Docking.C1DockTabControl;
    var parent = dragSource.Parent as C1.WPF.Docking.C1DockControl;
    if (parent!=null)
    if(parent.IsMouseCaptureWithin ==false && parent.IsMouseDirectlyOver == false )
    e.Effect = DragDropEffect.None;
