How to drop Blobfields into Explorer

hi friends,

i need a step by step explaination about:

i have a blob-field and a field with the filename in a table. i wish that the user is able to multiselect rows in a dbgrid and drag them on the explorer.

after dropping there, the blobs should extracted from the table and created as file with the filename in the directory, where the drop finished.

i think you should implement three interface dropsource,idataobject,iunkown .You can read the source of dragdrop components and the step by step tutorial(COM Interface-based Drag and Drop ) written by  Grahame Marsh in The Unofficial Newsletter of Delphi Users

good luck

thanks for the links,

i will try at monday,
if i become it applicable for my wish
and let you know,
therefore be patient.

for more clarification,
what i need is, what is enough for me is

explorer should accept the drag
and return me the path

in the meantime

or working samples
are welcome

Meikl, here is some reference material:

http://www.wideman-one.com/gw/tech/Delphi/dragdrop/index.htm

and also, as has already been suggested, the Drag and Drop Component Suite (great!):

http://www.melander.dk/delphi/dragdrop/

Yours,

well,
have checked out the
dragdrop-components from melander,
and have done a test with the TDropFileSource-Component.

this works proper enough for my needs,
and was easy to implement.

therefore i accept hubdogs last comment as answer,
for pointing me to this components.

well done hubdog,
congrates to your first 1000 expert-points ;-)

alex, you've right, its a great Suite ;-)
also thanks to you
