If TRUE, the control automatically accepts paths dragged to it, including the LV_PATH data type from drag and drop events. The LV_PATH data type is of type path. If FALSE, LabVIEW does not automatically accept any drops, including from the operating system, at run time. LabVIEW returns error 1157 if you set this property on an indicator.
