Drop on CWebBrowser2

Hi,
I want to drag a text over a CWebBrowser2 control (ex. http://www.pippo.com) to make the browser navigate.
I used this code:

COleDataSource*     pSource = new COleDataSource();
if(pSource)
{
  CSharedFile sf(GMEM_MOVEABLE|GMEM_DDESHARE|GMEM_ZEROINIT);
  CString iText;
  iText=m_Link;
  sf.Write(iText, iText.GetLength());
  HGLOBAL hMem = sf.Detach();
  if (!hMem)
    return;
  pSource->CacheGlobalData(CF_TEXT, hMem);
  pSource->DoDragDrop();
  delete pSource;
}

If I drag over my window it works but if I drag over CWebBrowser2 it doesn't (the drag is not catched).
Can you help me?

Hi, It seems to use CF_HDROP clipboard format to redirect webbrowser. See DROPFILES structure description into Shlobj.h

regards, Ilia

The WebBrowser control will automatically accept a LINK as a valid drop -- without any programming at all.  This is, by defualt is is registered as a drop target for hyperlinks or even desktop shortcuts that point to a URL.

Is that what you want?

Or do you want to be able to drag any old random text onto the control?
