Hello,


Is it possible to disable Drag and Drop in IE for user when he surfs the web page?

E.g. So the user is unable to drag an Image from one frame to another.

If this is not possible by scripting, how do I achieve otherwise ?

Regards,

M PG

This works if I don'tuse the frames the way I do.

I have three frames in my frameset:

frameTop.aspx (frameTop)
n/a  (frameMain)
frameBottom.aspx (frameBottom)

frameMain is passed to frameset as attribute and doesn't exist form the start,except is created
from attributed (?href=pageurl.xml) passed from previous page.

this is the way frameset looks like:

<frameset rows="120,*,40" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
  <frame src="frameTop.aspx" name="frameTop" scrolling="no" noresize>
  <frame src='<%=Request.QueryString["frameMain"]%>' name="frameMain" scrolling="no" noresize>
  <frame src="frameBottom.aspx" name="frameBottom" scrolling="no" noresize>
 </frameset>


So, this way I am unable to set <body onDragStart="return false"> on the frame file that desn't exist.

Is there a way to do this somehow, shut down drag and drop on whole client / IE?


Thanx in advance!

try something like,
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
var obj;
var dragging = false;
var objx, objy;


function cancelEvent()
{
   window.event.returnValue = false;
}

//-->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<img ondragstart="cancelEvent()" src="http://experts-exchange.com/images/indexLogo.gif">
</BODY>
</HTML>
