Drop file to sfkanban -> Get column name


I would like to drop a file from Windows Explorer to a kanban.

In the .drop event, how can I get the column where I dropped and the filename of the dropped file(s) to create a new card?

Thank you. Marco

We have checked your requirement from our side. As of now, the kanban does not have support for the same. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases.

At the planning stage for every release cycle, we review all open features and identify features for implementation based on specific parameters including product vision, technological feasibility, and customer interest. We will let you know when this feature is implemented. We appreciate your patience until then.

It possible to get the filename including the path from the file dropped from Windows Explorer to the sfKanban.

Dim files() As String = e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.FileDrop)

As per the implementation of SfKanban, there is no support to get the external file name to the SfKanban column.
