[REBOL] Re: how to drag'n'drop ?

From: anton:lexicon at: 2-Oct-2002 21:27

Maybe it would be possible through the system port one day (I don't know of any docs for it yet, I think it's not really ready in the latest betas.) To do it now, I think you would need to access external windows libraries to catch window messages. That needs /View/Pro or /Command. You can imagine that implementing drag&drop between rebol and native os on all platforms will be difficult, so it hasn't been done yet. But you could help it happen by looking up the windows API's required and some example code, probably c++, that can allow this to happen. It is possible for a Windows process to hook in to another process' window and listen to or modify the window messages that it receives. So you could launch a separate process to listen to your rebol window and wait for "drag-over" messages or however it is done. Anton.
