Get the file extensions accepted by a QDrop area

Parameter areaRef is the reference to the plug-in area.

Parameter fileTypes is a text array that receives the file extensions accepted by the area.

In addition to standard file extensions, such as "txt" and "jpg", QDrop may also use magic file types that provide extra matching criteria.

qd_anyFileMagic "any*" Accept any file
qd_folderMagic "dir*" Accept folders
qd_QTImageMagic "qti*" Accept image files supported by QuickTime
qd_QTMovieMagic "qtm*" Accept movie files supported by QuickTime

WARNING QT magic types will not work on Windows, unless QuickTime is installed on the machine.

Example

   // Retrieve file extensions

C_LONGINT($error)
ARRAY TEXT($fileExtensions;0)

$error:=QD_GetDroppableFileExtensions(xDrop;$fileExtensions)
