Drag and drop location in GUI

Recommended Posts


Hey, is there a way to get info where file was dropped in your GUI ? For example I have two info boxes and need to know if it was dropped in first or second box :)

Here is a simple solution for you. Note the - @GUI_DropId = $Input_0

; Script generated by GUIBuilder Prototype 0.9

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>


Global $h_main = GuiCreate("MyGUI", 400, 44, -1, -1, $style, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

Global $Input_0 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 380, 20)
GUICtrlSetState($Input_0, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)


    Switch GuiGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         Case $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED
            If @GUI_DropId = $Input_0 Then GUICtrlSetData($Input_0, @GUI_DragFile)
         Case Else
 Until False
