Execute function on file drop

how exactly do i execute a function when a file is dropped on the window?

i’m trying to make this on windows / linux


The callback expects a string param which is the path of the file you dropped.

i didnt find anything that helps there

I had to do the same a few weeks ago for a Windows application. This was the code I used:

Lib.current.stage.window.onDropFile.add( onFileDropped)

private function onFileDropped(filePath:String):Void
  // code to execute goes here

I linked you to the exact API you needed above. @Tamar gave you the use-case example. I can verify this is exactly what you are looking for.
