    Query Mouse State for Hover While Dragging

    NicoChiaro

      Hello,

       

       

      I have a popover which contains a drag and drop area. I want to realize a HoverPopover Function similar to the one described here:

       

      https://www.teamdf.com/blogs/popovers-that-open-and-close-on-mouse-over/

       

      One Problem is in my way: if the cursor is dragging a file it will not be handled as a MouseOver by filemaker. So I have to query the state of the mouse somehow.

       

      I Know there are Javascript Functions which can do that:

       

      mousedown - How to check the current mouse button state Using Javascript - Stack Overflow

       

      And I use The MBS Plugin which is able to register and run JS without A webviewer:

       

      Monkeybread Software - MBS FileMaker Plugin: Component: JavaScript

       

      Well I don't know anything about Javascript so I might need a little push in the right direction.

       

       

      I would result in dragging a file onto an icon which contains a popover which is triggered to open and drop the file in the drop area and Import the file or whole direction recursively. (This already works and is quite cool)

       

      Thanks a lot for your help
