Add a "dragEnter" handler to the target field:
set the dragAction to "copy" -- there are other options
set the hilitelines of me to (word 2 of the mouseline)
put the dragData["text"}
As is, the dragdrop handler just puts the text into the message box. If
you want it dropped into the field, supply a position, like "put the
dragData["text"] & cr before the mouseline".
