I did implement drag/drop via gtk and it worked fine.  I guess I wanted to experiment with keeping it all inside the LCL so each widget set didn't need to support drag and drop because we were handling it internaly.  I agree it would be easier to just add the gtk_signal_connet calls when the controls are created and go with that......

As a matter of fact look at the creation of the csedit control.   I have the drag and drop stuff commented out there, but you can see it's pretty easy.  the other code is in the gtkdragcallback file.

It appears that the best way is using the DND built into GTK+ and Qt.


Since it already has all of the required signals can't we just go for

someone with a similar name subscribing after that.

HEY SAM!!! Are you on the list yet?
