Hi guys I need some help on this one..
I want my program to be able to accept dragged items (filenames to be specific) and then do whatever i want with it (play it ... like winamp does)but when i try to do so with the OnDragOver event on any of the delphi components, my application doesen't react when i drag a file over it. Can anyone help me?
What do I do???

for things like that I use DragAndDrop suite from anders melander
you can download it from :
http://homepages.borland.com/torry/draganddrop.htm

the homepage was moved and I can't find it

another link :

you can also 'catch' the WM_DROPFILES message and handle it
