How Can I Make Any LabVIEW Control Capture the File Path From a Drag-and-Drop?
Primary Software Version: 1.0

I want my picture ring control to behave like the file path control, accepting drag-and-drops from outside of LabVIEW during runtime. Even though the control would not display the path text, I would like to secretly capture the path so I can effectively read and edit the file elsewhere in my program. Is there any way to do this?
Since there is no direct property for this, you will need to implement an event-driven solution that seamlessly uses an invisible file path control.
See the attached example program that demonstrates this functionality.
