Does AutoIt support Drag & Drop at all in its GUI Interface?

a few things to look at in the help

@GUI_DragID Drag GUI Control identifier. Only valid in an event Function.

@GUI_DragFile Filename of the file being dropped. Only valid in an event Function.

@GUI_DropID Drop GUI Control identifier. Only valid in an event Function.

example from the help file

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate(" My GUI input acceptfile", 320,120, @DesktopWidth/2-160, @DesktopHeight/2-45, -1, 0x00000018); WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES
$file = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 10,  5, 300, 20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
GUICtrlCreateInput ("", 10,  35, 300, 20)   ; will not accept drag&drop files
$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Ok", 40,  75, 60, 20)

GUISetState () 

$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       $msg = GUIGetMsg()
       Select
           Case $msg = $btn
               exitloop
       EndSelect
Wend

MsgBox (4096, "drag drop file", GUICtrlRead($file))

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Ok, I got the drag and drop working... but what I was wanting is something more like how MSN does it, where you can drag and drop a file in the text box and it starts the file sending process. Is there any way I can grab the file drag and drop event? or is the only way to handle it the way AutoIt does it currently. Is there any means of handleig the drag and drop event via a custom function?
