I have created a simple Dialog Application with a ListBox

m_dwgList.DragAcceptFiles(TRUE);
allows the drag/drop cursor to work correctly
but now how do I capture the droped file name.

The onyl examples I have found drop into a SID window not a ListBox

Use COleDropTarget class
to register your target window and catch OnDrop event like:

class YourClass;
class YourDropTarget : public  COleDropTarget
{
protected:
    virtual BOOL OnDrop(CWnd* pWnd, ...................) { return ((YourClass*)pWnd)->OnDropProcess(.....); }
}

class YourClass : public CWnd
{
friend class YourDropTarget;
private:
    BOOL OnDropProcess(....);
};

Register target OnCreate event and Revoke OnDestroy events

int YourClass::OnCreate(...)
{
    _target.Register(this);
}

void YourClass::OnDestroy(...)
{
    _target.Revoke(this);
}

I'll give it a try
I am basicly a C programmer and may need a little more detailed help.
I'll let you know how it works.

question:
 Will this also work for a Cut & Paste event?
Thanks

For Cut/Paste you have to use another approach...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I forgot to add YourDropTarget class member
class YourClass : public CWnd
{
friend class YourDropTarget;
private:
    BOOL OnDropProcess(....);
   YourDropTarget _target;
};

I had already been trying something  simular
but get the error
error C2504: 'COleDropTarget' : base class undefined
trying to create the class.
did I need to include automation when I created the project?
Can i now just add an Include file or how do I implement COle
