How to get the target location of a drag and drop from a delphi application to explorer?

Hi all,

I am currently developping an application on which I have to manage the drag and drop.

My question is: How to get the target location of a drag and drop from a delphi application to windows' explorer? i.e if the target is the windows desktop, i have to get 'c:\documents and settings\user\desktop'

That is the documentation to do a drag-and-drop file copy, but it doesn't give me the path of the destination folder...

I search the target folder location of a drag and drop from my application to the shell to do some pre-process operation.

I've not done this before, but if I were writing an app to do what you are doing, this is where I would start.  Obviously you can't drop something onto the desktop that's not a file, but from the digging I was doing on the above link, I don't think it has to be an existing file that you are dragging.  It looked like it has all the info you need.  Unfortunately none of the Windows API stuff is nearly as simple as Delphi, that's why we have Delphi.  There appeared to be info about windows messages, COM object structures, etc, that could be used to specify what you are doing.  If it's not in there, I don't know where to point you, but I would do some digging in there before you give up on it.
