Allowing User to Drag a Texture2D to a region of a custom editor

I want to write a custom editor, where in the user can drag a Texture2D onto a region (ScrollView) and show a Window/ScriptableWizard to allow the user to define how to convert the Texture2D to the underlying structure. Is there a way to allow this behavior. Only thing I care about is having a region to accept only Texture2D, of a custom size. The rest of the behavior after that should be trivial.

I haven’t tried this with a Texture2D but, in general, if you declare a public field with a specific type, then if the editor displays it at it all it will restrict drag and drop to that type.

There is a special variant on this behavior where, if you declare a public field of a Component type, then it will accept a GameObject but ONLY one that has that type as a component, and assign that game object’s matching component to the field.

Rect scrollViewRect = GUILayoutUtility.GetLastRect ();
if(Event.current.type == EventType.DragExited || Event.current.type == EventType.DragUpdated)
Texture2D objects = new Texture2D[DragAndDrop.objectReferences.Length];
int i = 0;
foreach(UnityEngine.Object obj in DragAndDrop.objectReferences)
if(obj is Texture2D)
objects = obj as Texture2D;

  •  				++i;*
  •  			}*
  •  		}*
  •  		for(int j = 0; j < i; ++j)*
  •  		{*
  •  			Debug.Log (objects[j]);*
  •  		}*
  •  	}*
  •  }*

This is the cleanest way I could find of doing it. Do to the way Unity’s selection works it is not really possible to do this in a custom Editor with mulit-select. However using an EditorWindow you should be able to.
