Sets file path list for drag.
If you use this function, the Drop Area can be used to drag files. Not working with DragDrop.AttachToWindow as we need a control to catch mouse events.

You may want to write some container file to a temp file in a temp folder and pass path to the file here.


Write temp file and allow dragging it:

# find a temp file path
Set Variable [ $path ; Value: MBS( "Path.AddPathComponent"; MBS( "Folders.UserTemporary" ); "export.jpg") ]
# write our container there
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "Container.WriteFile"; DragTest::GImage; $path ) ]
# and use it for dragging
Set Variable [ $result ; Value: MBS( "DragDrop.SetFilePathsToDrag"; $$dropview; $path) ]
