    Simple Drag-and-Drop in Windows with C

    How can I do simple drop handling in Windows? I only need to handle dropped text and files. It needs to be in C.
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Ever notice how fast Windows runs?
    Neither did I.
    Which is why I switched to Linux.

    WM_DROPFILES message (Windows). Everything you need for file drops is linked to in the main body.

    The required code is in that C library. adeyblue's link explains how the Win32 API's used in that library work. If you were to do it in C++, the code would be slightly simplified since COM programming is more straight forward in C++.
