I’m experimenting with an Electron-based media gallery app, that can navigate through all images and videos in a given directory using arrow keys or mouse clicks.
I can implement a native
File->Open menu item in the main process, and from that obtain the full local path of a file. However, it would also be great to implement drag-and-drop, so that dragging a file or video onto the Electron window had the same effect.
The problem I’m finding is that the main process doesn’t seem to have functionality for intercepting such a drop event… and the
Is there any way to work around this, and obtain the full local filesystem path for a file that’s drag-and-dropped onto an Electron window? Thanks!
