Sets the image to use for dragging.
This image represents the content of the drag operation.
If none is set, we use the image shown in the container.

On Windows the image is only shown if the underlaying software supports it. That means it won't show if over some of the FileMaker controls!


Set the drag image:

Set Variable [ $result ; Value: MBS( "DragDrop.SetDragImage"; $$dropview; DragTest::DragImage) ]
