Drag and Drop between 2 opened editors [message #590103] Thu, 22 January 2009 07:37

My application writing needs are to enable drag & drop between 2 opened editors.

While there is the possibility to open both editors side by side, it's not a well known feature, and sometimes not desirable.

What I would like is enable the user to work on several open editors, and, from time to time, initiate a drag operation from editor A, hovering the mouse over the tab showing the label of editor B,
which will then be opened to allow the drop operation to be done on editor B.

I don't know :

- if it is feasible at all ?
- if yes, where to plug things/start with ?

IS THERE a correct way to do this in a plug-in, so that I don't violate some "good behaving rules" ?

Thanks in advance if you can answer to my questions,
