drag and drop onto max icon in dock?

February 19, 2007 | 1:41 am

is there any any way to receive information about files dropped onto the max icon in the dock in os x?

I have a dropfile in my patch for dropping sound files onto. I’d like to be able to drop sound files onto the max icon as well.

any thoughts?

Not a clue unfortionatly, but as no-one else has replied – maybe you could find something like that out of using the shell object and terminal.

The ‘opened" patcher still works fine.
