Oliver,

I do not drag multiple folders simultaneously, but one folder which contains subfolders.

I use the following field scripts

ON dragEnter
   IF there is a folder the dragdata["files"]  THEN set the dragaction to copy 
END dragEnter
 ## The DragEnter checks if a folder is dragged. No folder no dragaction.

##dragDrop then removes the file:// from the path
ON dragDrop
   IF the platform="Linux" THEN replace "file://" WITH "" in fld 1 of me
END dragDrop

 
If you need a list of that subfolders or the files in the subfolder you can use the following script from David Vaughan. I found it in the ScripterScrapbook.

FUNCTION walkDir dirPath
    put empty into tList
    set defaultfolder to dirPath
    put the files into fList
   
    REPEAT FOR each line fLine in fList
        IF char 1 of fLine <> "." THEN
            put fLine into fData -- & comma & last item of fLine into fData
            put dirPath & "/" & fData & return after tList
        END IF
    END REPEAT
    get the folders
    REPEAT FOR each line x in it
        IF char 1 of x <> "." THEN
            put walkDir(dirPath & "/" & x) after tList
        END IF
    END REPEAT
    return  tList
END walkDir

HTH,

Matthias
