There is probably a clever way to do it, but meanwhile, you can always use dum methods like this one

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <misc.au3>
$gui = GUICreate("Drag Any Text From Another Window To Edit", 400, 300, -1, -1, -1)
$ed1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 200, 100, -1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Do
    If _IsPressed(1) Then;if the primary mouse button is down
        $ci = MouseGetPos()
        If IsArray($ci) Then
            $parent = WinGetTitle('')
            If $parent <> $gui Then;if it's not this gui
                Send("^c");copy the text
                While _IsPressed(1);wait for drag to end
                    Sleep(10)
                WEnd
                $dropID = GUIGetCursorInfo($gui)
        ;did the drag end in the Edit?
                If IsArray($dropID) And $dropID[4] = $ed1 Then
                    winactivate($gui);make sure the send goes to the edit
                    guictrlsetstate($ed1,$GUI_FOCUS)
                    Send("^v");paste into the edit
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
    
    EndIf


    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Sleep(10)
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

@martin - I'm glad you seem to know what he is asking. I have no clue.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Dale, perhaps you didn't realize that you can drag a website's favicon (or default icon, if it has no favicon of its own - the one directly to the left of the URI input) from a web browser. This enables you to drop shortcuts directly onto your desktop, or wherever - all browsers can do it, afaik. But not into an AutoIt GUI, apparently.

The same question was asked here..

And here..

But as yet, no one has come up with a satisfying answer.

I too, would like to know how to do this.
