how do we make Dragable ?

Post by Tapdroid »

I placed an html object on the right side of the canvas. On run, it displays a C: drive folder and contents.
How can we make all the gif contents in the folder dragable to the canvas, and all those files drag and drop
on the canvas?

It is not possible to interact with the browser object like a real access to the file system. Its like you try to drop hyperlinks from IE into any other application. That will only copy the text, not the binary data.

You should use the File-Open-Dialog for whatever you want to do. And I think a drag 'n drop feature is not supported without a plugin.

Yeah...
wanted to open and drag from within mmb rather than separate window.

If the gifs were all contained in the mmb rather than from a folder, there should be,,, at least I thought I saw a
script back in the 90's, to make objects on the canvas dragable.

wasn't there a sample in 4.5 that had dragable objects?

I remember once upon a time I put together a little app that had a button labeled "Close"

The button would move away from the cursor when the user tried to click it.
That is pretty close to a drag...
