    Title: Dropping content isn't a drag: Handling drag & drop (& paste) into XMetaL documents
    Date: Thursday, April 07, 2011
    Time: 11:00 am PT | 2:00 pm ET

    Tom Magliery, XML Technology Specialist, JustSystems

    Raise your hand if you've heard this before:  Can I drag and drop (or paste) content from somewhere else into XMetaL? The answer is a qualified “yes” — it can be done, but if the stuff being dropped is not already plain XML, someone has to write some script to make it happen. (That someone is you, the XMetaL customizer.) The stickiest part of the problem is transforming the dropped data into valid XML. But in addition to that, you need to know the mechanics of processing these user actions in XMetaL. In this webinar we will leave aside the “transformation” part of the problem, and focus on the XMetaL APIs for detecting and handling user drop/paste events and inspecting and accessing the user's data from the clipboard.

    Does this require Xmetal Developer?

    No, XMetaL Developer is not required to take advantage of the techniques I'll be demonstrating in this webinar.

    The question of “Do I need XMetaL Developer?” in general is a good one, worthy of answering in a topic of its own. There are many things that you can do to customize XMetaL without XMetaL Developer, and there are also some situations where having XMetaL Developer is advantageous.
