We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I am currently working on a project where if a user drags a file onto the program's screen, it will take in the path and use its location to create a shortcut to it inside the program. I have heard the term for this as "drag-and-drop" functionality and have seen it in many popular programs and editing softwares. I am wondering if it is at all possible for me to be able to drag a program or file onto the screen and take its path in a variable. I am not looking for the ability to drag and drop a file onto my sketches icon (I have already done this through file-type association). I have also heard the terms "stdin" and "stdout" and they sounded similar to how I might achieve this or possible the way I need to approach this, but I am unsure about how to recreate that in processing.
Thanks in advance,
