Yeah, I used DND in my file manager, I think there might be a code example on my blog http://www.mickinator.com/wordpress but I'm not 100% sure.

I'll have a look later and get back to you with an example. I found the one included with gtk2hs quite confusing :)
 

there is filemanager program mentioned in gtk2hs news that supports
d&d

btw, i also have question regarding d&d - does it work only inside
gtk2hs/gtk programs or it's possible to d&d between Windows Explorer
and my program? i'm writing filemanager too ;)
 
I'd say there is maybe a way to get transferance between gtk apps, but I think at this stage using gtk2hs it would be a nightmare, I remember writing the DND and finding it very hacky. Then again I may have done it wrong!

You would have to know what was being dropped/dragged, and have a means of accepting it and handling it.

It would be interesting though :)
