Wx::FileDataObject

FileDataObject is a specialization of DataObject for file names. The program works with it just as if it were a list of absolute file names, but internally it uses the same format as Explorer and other compatible programs under Windows or GNOME/KDE filemanager under Unix which makes it possible to receive files from them using this class.

Warning: Under all non-Windows platforms this class is currently “input-only”, i.e. you can receive the files from another application, but copying (or dragging) file(s) from a Widgets application is not currently supported. PS: GTK2 should work as well.

Virtual functions to override

None.
