Principle
To perform a programmed Drag and Drop between several controls of a WINDEV application or WEBDEV site:
  1. In the initialization code of the source control:
    • Define that a programmed "Drag and Drop" will be performed (..DndSource).
    • Define the procedure run at the beginning of "Drag" action (DnDEvent for the dndBeginDrag event).
  2. In the initialization code of the target control:
    • Define that a programmed "Drag and Drop" will be performed (..DndTarget).
    • Define the procedure run when hovering the control (DnDEvent for the dndDragOver event). In this procedure, you have the ability to define the mouse cursor with DnDCursor.
    • Define the procedure run during the "Drop" on the control (DnDEvent for the dndDrop event).
  3. In each one of the WLanguage procedures called, define the action to run via the "Drag and Drop" functions of WLanguage.
