ok, i get the concept of drag & drop and i've gotten all the examples i've found on this topic to work, i like the flexibility but what i'd like to know is when a file from the filesystem is dropped onto the form, i'd like to be able to know what file it is and where (drive:\path\name.ext) so i can open it with a streamreader (this is just a text file) any idea's ? any articles?

Hi JuggaloBrotha,

in the event DragDrop you can check with e.Data.GetDataPresent("FileName") if there is a file dropped onto your form. With e.Data.GetData("FileName") you then can get the filename(s).

Hope, this will help
