Hello, I’m a new Juce user, just getting used to this insanely useful system. I’m having a bit of a misunderstanding as far as how to use a FileTreeComponent’s drag and drop functionality. Basically, I want to have a file tree where when the user drags a file onto a box, it returns the file’s path. I’m having some trouble getting the file tree to act as a drag and drop at all though. I’m trying to use :
void FileTreeComponent::setDragAndDropDescription ( const String & description ) throw ()
Setting a name for this allows tree items to be dragged.
But basically, it’s just not happening: can’t drag anything. At the moment I’m just trying to get it to say “File!” whenever it’s dropped, but no dice. Maybe I’m misunderstanding the documentation, is there something else I should do? Here’s the code snippet:
[code] File folder (File::getSpecialLocation (File::userHomeDirectory));
while (folder.getParentDirectory() != folder)
folder = folder.getParentDirectory();
directoryList = new DirectoryContentsList (0, thread); directoryList->setDirectory (folder, true, true); thread.startThread (3); addAndMakeVisible(fileTree = new FileTreeComponent(*directoryList)); fileTree->setDragAndDropDescription ( T("File!") );[/code]
Any tips greatly appreciated. Hopefully I can become a helpful part of the forum rather than just a help-seeker once I get a better handle on juce.
