Feature SFX is sorely lacking

SFX seriously needs a "spring-loaded" folder feature. Drag a file over a directory and it should expand itself to access its subdirectories. Of course Mac OS does this, but also Windows XP and I think Win2k as well.

The lack of this has become apparent so many times.

Thanks.

I also think that would be a good feature to have in SecureFX. Oddly enough, I think you are the first person to request this feature in SecureFX (I could not find any other such request in our database). So, I have added your request to the database to be reviewed for future release.

Thanks.

Thanks. Is the file structure you use in SecureFX your own that looks like Windows' or do you use something in Windows API's (I'm obviously not a programmer) to get an Explorer interface in there?

For the folder tree in question we use one of Microsoft's common controls, but the automatic expansion behavior that occurs in Explorer when you hover over a folder is not built into the common control. There are some fairly hairy issues to solve in adding this feature, so it may take us some time to add this functionality into SecureFX.
