Drag and Drop

Previous pageReturn to chapter overview

Drag and Drop is used more and more, and is especially helpful if you have a tablet or screen with touchscreen capabilities. However, it was and still is designed for mouse use. The point is to make it easy to implement a function without clicking on a lot of buttons. We will try and indicate where drag and drop is available in the help for each screen.


To use Drag and Drop, simply 'Grab' an object with your mouse by clicking on the object (with your left mouse button) but do not let go. Keep holding the mouse button down and move the mouse over the 'Target'.


The object is usually an item in a browse or list box.
