Some other phrase I might search for? Sounds like you are looking for a specific scenario for dragging and dropping. The Drag manager basically provides the ability to track when an item is dragged and where it is dropped. The user code needs to set up functions to handle these while calling the drag manager and decide if the locations are important to the processing. A full example of drag and drop manager that isn't yet ancient but still serviceable is "carbon_pleasureDome". It is on the FB4 CD in Examples/Drag & Drop Manager. Again, the Drag manager does not cater to only a specific drag and drop scenario, it is up to the user (that's the programmer) to decide what drags and what drops are important. Depending on your needs, it might be possible to use overlay windows as Bernie showed us with his slick example 2 years ago. It allows drag copying of an icon from one window to another. I've mentioned Bernie's code a few times lately (and I know David C requested the CEUtil/NibUtil code) hoping Bernie would chime in and repost the code but I know he is busy with other matters at the moment. I'll contact Bernie offlist and request his permission to post his code. Brian S.
