Description

The Drop control allows you to create an area where you can drop objects, like files, folders and other objects that deliver either a string or a path. In addition to the common properties like size, position etc., it provides a number of special properties that allow you to configure the control. The Drop control can show a bitmap to indicate the drop area, display a bitmap if drop is accepted or rejected, and can be configured using regular expressions to accept only files of a specific type.
