Drag an image from Explorer to an Iframe
Posted on 2005-04-15
I want to drag an image from Explorer (Windows Explorer) to an Iframe or other suitable container in IE.
I can drag an image from one instance of IE to an IFrame in another (security permissions for drag and drop are enabled) OK, and do the same between two instances of Firefox. I can also drag from Explorer to an Iframe in Firefox.
But if I drag from Explorer to an Iframe in IE, I get no insertion caret and the page just navigates away and shows the image full screen. It seesm to me I should be able to intercept the URL of the dragged image somehow such that it is displayed where I want it in the Iframe.
I actually need that URL anyway (whether from another instance or from Explorer) because I want to save the information in a form submit.
Can anyone help?
