IUIAutomationDropTargetPattern::CachedDropTargetEffects property

Retrieves a cached array of localized strings that enumerate the full set of effects that can happen when the user drops a grabbed element on this drop target as part of a drag-and-drop operation.

This property is read-only.

Syntax


HRESULT get_CachedDropTargetEffects(
  [out, retval, optional]  SAFEARRAY **retVal
);

Property value

Type: SAFEARRAY**

A cached array of localized strings that enumerate the possible drop effects for this drop target.

Remarks

Some drag operations support a set of different drop effects. For example, a drag operation that is initiated with a right-click might display a menu of options for the action that occurs when the element is dropped. To find out the set of effects that can happen when the grabbed element is dropped, a client can query the DropEffects property of the dragged element. This property can contain short strings such as "move", or longer ones such as "insert into Main group". The strings are always localized.
