Sets the drag enter handler.
Specify a filename and script name to have this script being called when a drag operation enters the window. This gives you the possibility to draw something like a note "Drop here".
The script parameter will be the drop area reference.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.


Registers drag enter handler:

MBS( "DragDrop.SetDragEnterHandler"; $dropHandle; Get ( FileName ); "MyDragEnter")
