Detecting end of external drag of files


#1

How do I find out when an external drag of files (to another application ) has finished from my JUCE app?

I don’t see to get a mouse up event until the app regains focus…?


#2

We don’t currently have a callback for that and TBH I’m not even sure if it’s possible on all platforms… would certainly require a lot of platform-specific research and tinkering…

Ok - I’ll put a timer on it and make some horrible assumptions for now.

We have a progress bar that appears while dragging as there’s some cute on the fly stuff going on that needs to be finished before the drag is released. It’s normally so quick the bar doesn’t bother appearing … but when it does it gets stuck :wink:
