New Version of Drag & Drop DLL published

We released a new version of the Drag & Drop DLL that allows dropping of files and emails to a PowerBuilder application. 
Major enhancements are:

  • Each Email message is stored in it's own folder. This prevents problems when dropping multiple messages with the same subject.
  • When registering a control, an optional target control can be assigned.
  • An alternative folder instead of the "Temp" folder can be used. This prevents problems with very long subjects in emails (Windows allows 255 characters for folder + file at most)
