I had a problem that sounded easy (as it is in most programming languages) but was not solvable in Labview. My problem was, I wanted to delete from a listbox by drag-dropping outside of the box. While BrokenArrow came up with a nice workaround it is not helping for other quality of life problems.
Imagine, you have a data evaluation tool that is ought to open a set of data. Drag-dropping the file from the explorer onto the frontpanel seems like a comfortable solution for the user; but right now it is only possible to drop to a path field.
While I think it is a good idea to remove not so frequently used operations from regulary used structures like the event structure, there should be a way to catch these events, anyhow.
Let me hear what you think and do not forget to Kudo if you like the idea.
