OS Drag&drop - ksubox - 14 Oct 2013


I wonder how to process OS drag&drop events in engine?

RE: OS Drag&drop - dizzy - 18 Oct 2013


Currently, drag&drop is not directly available in the framework.

It is basically possible to extend the platform implementation to handle necessary events, e.g. by reacting on WM_DROPFILES events in source/platform/win32/gdi/murl_platform_win32_gdi_window.cpp on Windows. These events may then be forwarded to a custom control, which might also handle dragging operations in the other direction.

However, the project files for rebuilding the platform front-ends is not yet included in the release package, we will add these in one of the next updates so it's possible for you to easily modify the platform libs.

Best regards,
