Im sure you have looked at this

http://www.reaper.fm/sdk/walter/walter.php

Code:
tcp.dragdropchild: Where to show the drag and drop indicator for the "make child" action.
Try defining it in a theme in a really obvious place, for example [1 1 60 60 0 0 0 0] ... should show up loud and clear when you drag/drop a track in the tcp.

Is this the blue line that appears when I drag and drop child tracks? I have not yet understood how this works.

Seems to be a complete mess to be honest
Make it too big and drag n drop wont work properly
Make it small and it does nothing anyway
Somebody please explain how it works

I'm trying to get this to work in the rtconfig.txt with WALTER code and still just get the regular blue line. Is it supposed to replace that line with a .png named tcp_dragdropchild.png?

Alright, I figured out the basis idea behind tcp.dragdropchild.

From the website:
tcp.dragdropchild: Where to show the drag and drop indicator for the "make child" action.

There is no corresponding .png. A coordinate list defines when the vertical blue bar shows up, but I'm not sure exactly what values to use, so I'm just using the defaults by not including "set tcp.dragdropchild [XXXXXXXX]" in my rtconfig.txt

Does anyone have any uses for this beyond the default behavior? The default works fine for me. I initially thought the blue bar was themeable, but apparently not.
