Raise your hand if you've heard this before: Can I drag and drop (or paste) content from somewhere else into XMetaL? The answer is a qualified "yes" -- it can be done, but if the stuff being dropped is not already plain XML, someone has to write some script to make it happen. (That someone is you, the XMetaL customizer.) The stickiest part of the problem is transforming the dropped data into valid XML. But in addition to that, you need to know the mechanics of processing these user actions in XMetaL. In this webinar we will leave aside the "transformation" part of the problem, and focus on the XMetaL APIs for detecting and handling user drop/paste events and inspecting and accessing the user's data from the clipboard.
