Query Mouse State for Hover While Dragging

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


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
