I would like to hear from the community about the state of Drag and Drop with respect to FileMaker interface design. Specifically I am looking to design a grid interface that allows the user to drag data contained in a cell to any other Row/Column. Please share your thoughts and experiences regarding:
- pros and cons of drag/drop between fields in records vs. drag/drop between fields in portals
- techniques for accomplishing drag and drop
- Behavior of triggers while clicking, dragging and dropping.
- Drag and drop in a virtual list?
- Existing solutions out on the interwebs.
- Pitfalls and gotchas to look out for
Anything else you might think of!
