Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Drag-and-drop support in a window, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] The last thing I want to cover…is how to support drag and drop inside of our test window.…Let's go ahead and open up…the test window code in MonoDevelop.…Below our OnGUI, let's go ahead and create a new method.…We're going to call this DropAreaGUI.…Now inside of our DropAreaGUI,…we're going to want to get a reference to the current event.…Let's go ahead and create a new variable called e.…We're going to set it equal to the Event.current.type.…
Next, we're going to want to test if e is equal…to the EventType class and we'll look for the drag update.…One thing to note is that it's very important…to choose the correct property.…Here, we're going to do DragUpdated…starting with a capital D.…Now, inside of this, let's go ahead…and change the DragAndDrop's visual mode…to let the cursor reflect that we're about…to accept dragging onto the actual window.…We'll call the DragAndDrop class directly…and set the visualMode to equal…DragAndDropVisualMode.Copy enum.…
We'll select it from the autocomplete list down below.…
