Hi there?

I want to open a file by dragging it to the shortcut to a program, and then the program will start and open the file for me. For example. i can drag a TXT file on the on the shotcut to the NOTEPAD.EXE, and then the file will be open and displayed.

Thank you in advance!

Hello there! I've wrote this simple example to show you how :

        1st: Drag and drop files into the shortcut to be opened

2nd: Drag and drop files into EditBox to be opened

Thank you for reply! :D

HowTo - Handle the double-click/dropped file(s)

; --- cut ---
invoke GetModuleHandle, NULL
mov    hInstance,eax
; --- cut ---
; Get the commandline args (like when dragging files into the editor icon)
; CmdLine: "C:\Dev\Projects\SciASM\SciASM.exe"C:\Dev\Projects\Hello.txt
invoke GetCommandLine
mov    CommandLine,eax

; Get command line filename
invoke PathGetArgs, CommandLine ; Win32 shell path functions
  @@: ; MasmEd
mov dl,
inc eax
jmp @b
invoke PathUnquoteSpaces, eax ; Win32 shell path functions
mov CommandLine,eax

invoke WinMain, hInstance,NULL, CommandLine, SW_SHOWDEFAULT
invoke ExitProcess,eax

WinMain proc uses edx, hInst:HINSTANCE,hPrevInst:HINSTANCE,\
; --- cut ---
; Get command line filename
; Note: We had a
; 1) filename double-click or
; 2) a filename dropped on the application icon
xor eax, eax

; Handle the double-click/dropped file(s)
invoke ProcessCommandLine, CmdLine
; Initialise a new document and set the lexer
invoke NewDocument
; --- cut ---
.while TRUE
invoke GetMessage, addr msg,NULL,0,0
.break .if(!eax)
; --- cut ---

WinMain endp

; ProcessCommandLine
; Ref : SciTEBase::ProcessCommandLine()
; Desc: Process the commandline and open any filenames passed
; Note: We had a
; 1) filename double-click or
; 2) a filename dropped on the application icon
; @param lpchArgs Command line parameters
; @returns boolean
ProcessCommandLine proc uses esi, lpchArgs:dword
LOCAL nCnt:dword

; Command line parameters: lpchArgs
; ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ;
; Note: The Win32 shell path functions (GetCommandLine & PathGetArgs) should
; have removed any filename spaces (in dropped files).
; Note: There is a space between multiple files
; Single file: something like "C:\Dev\Xxx.txt"
; Multi files: something like "C:\Dev\Xxx.txt C:\Dev\Yyy.txt"
