Drag and drop files from the host


Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to have a plugin respond to drag-and-dropped files from the host for a plugin using the juce framework. I have a feeling it is indeed, not possible, but was wondering.


If the host do some standard DnD (try to DnD from the host to the desktop) then you just have to use FileDragAndDropTarget



some hosts will, others won’t? I am using Ableton LIVE to test my plugin and it looks like LIVE doesn’t implement standard DnD since dragging from it the desktop does nothing. Dragging from the desktop to my plugin works with my DnD implementation. I guess I’ll have to live with that… Thanks!
