Drag&Drop and List

Recommended Posts


Hey guys,

I'm quite new to AutoIt and I want to code a simple script for files.

I want to drag files with my mouse from the desktop/a folder and drop them in the programm on a list.

The list should add the filenames as a item.

Now I would like if someone could tell me with what functions I could do this.

Thats all I guess for now.

best regards.

Hi, Dr7, welcome to the forums. Check out the functions GUICreate, GUICreateList, and the GUI Control Styles page in the helpfile (specifically, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES). This is real quick, but should nudge you in the right direction.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Local $msg
    GUICreate("My Drag 'N Drop GUI", 200, 200)
$mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("My List", 10, 10, 100, 100, Default, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!
