    State of the Art:  Drag and Drop

    darrenburgess

      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:

       

      1. pros and cons of drag/drop between fields in records vs. drag/drop between fields in portals
      2. techniques for accomplishing drag and drop
      3. Behavior of triggers while clicking, dragging and dropping.
      4. Drag and drop in a virtual list?
      5. Existing solutions out on the interwebs.
      6. Pitfalls and gotchas to look out for

       

      Anything else you might think of!
