DescriptionCreates a new drop area which covers the whole window.
Use DragDrop.Release later to destroy the drop area.
If you use a register (tab controls) on the window, be aware that the drop area actually is in front of the register (tab controls). So you need to check in the script which register page is current and should get the dropped files.
Drag & Drop reference numbers are starting at 31000 and counting up for each new drop area.
Added Windows support for MBS Plugin 8.1 for FileMaker 16 or newer.
