       This may be a feature request.

    If I drag and drop multiple files, using a single selection, from disk onto a GeUserArea then I get multiple messages for each file.

    I get a BFM_DRAGRECEIVE with an DRAGTYPE_FILENAME_IMAGE. Which is fine, I can then handle each image. But there doesn't seem to be any call made when all the files have been handled.

    I tested for BFM_DRAGEND but this was not sent.

    Is there a message that is sent after the drop is finished?

    If not then it would be great if one could be added in.

    Hi Kent,

    unfortunately such a message is indeed missing. I created an idea in our issue tracker and also informed our product management about the need.

    Thanks Andreas. I want to be able to process a whole bunch of files in one go after the drop is finished. I will have to make a queue instead with a manual process button for now, still acceptable, but getting sent a message would be great.
