Whenever any user copy files/folders, A HDROP data is placed on the clipboard.
I registered my window as a clipboard viewer, Now whenever i get WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD notification, i check for HDROP on the clipboard(using GetClipboardData() and I get the list of copied files to clipboard(using DragQueryFile).
But i require only list of files/folders that are copied.
For that, i have made a trick(successful up to some extent).
Whenever WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD comes, I read the list of files and store it locally and than SetClipboard(CF_HDROP,NULL) for delayed rendering. but WM_RENDERFORMAT message comes little early. Whenever user right click on blank space, windows send WM_RENDERFORMAT to me(At the time of showing context menu). Is it possible to get notified only when paste option of a context menu is clicked? so as i can log the files that are pasted only.
