Description

Creates a new drop area inside the window with the given rectangle.
Use DragDrop.Release later to destroy the drop area.
If you use a register on the window, be aware that the drop area actually is in front of the register. 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.
