[Gtk-sharp-list] Drag and drop path
Tue, 30 Nov 2004 17:20:45 +0100
Thanks for the help, I'll check it out tonight!
But it seems strange to me that a simple GTK application would require
gnomevfs to be able to use it's drag and drop URI:s? Not that it
matters, I was planning on looking at gnomevfs anyway :-)
p.s. I am writing a C# music player and I will drop you an off list mail
