Can you drag-n-drop a file from the desktop to a container field with FMPro v13 on Windows ?
Yes, with the caveat that the inserted content will automatically be embedded (insertion as a reference isn't available using this method). See sidebar on page 2-68 of the FTS Advanced PDF.
Thanks for the warning, I only want a file reference. I want the drag-n-drop functionality to make it easy for users to provide file path info. It is so much easier to drop the file onto a hotspot than it is to navigate through the file browser.
In that case perhaps you should script a button that leads users through the navigation …
First you wrote 'from the desktop', if the case you can use Get(DesktopPath) to get the path.
Make 'hotspot' on desktop is done by
1.create batch file in any place as
2.create shortcut for the batch file on desktop
3.drag&drop any file to the shortcut run the FM script and get the path as Get(ScriptParameter)
Great suggestion, thanks for the idea.
