Drag and Drop
The GNU Public License
Siag and PW supports drag and drop as defined by the
by CÚsar Crusius. The DND protocol is used by the tools
OffiX project, the
Exode project, the
program and others.
Files can be dragged from the Files file manager program
onto a window. A new instance of the application is then started
and the file automatically loaded.
Drag the PI.txt file into the running PW...
...and another PW is automatically started with the file loaded
If a directory is dropped on PW, no file is loaded but the
new program changes current directory before starting up.
Using the DND library to add drag and drop support to a program
is very easy, the necessary changes to Siag were less than 20 lines.
The more people start using it, the more
useful it becomes.
