Opera supports drag-and-drop of URLs from the address bar to the desktop. I have not been able to build an app that works as a drop target for drag-and-drop from Opera. Code that works for IE and Firefox doesn't work for Opera.
Among other things, I have tried using the open source utility ClipSpy (http://www.codeproject.com/clipboard/clipspy.asp
) which does work as a drop target for IE and Firefox, but shows a "disallowed" cursor (barred circle) when you try to drop a URL from Opera on its target panel.
At minimum, I need an explanation of why I'm seeing this behavior. Ideally, I would like code that works with Opera, perhaps by modifying ClipSpy so that it accepts (and displays) a URL dropped on it from Opera.
