Based on the concept here: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2007/02/upload-files-in-browser-using-drag-and.html
I am looking for the best method for achieving this using C#, Framework 3.5 and AJAX for Internet Explorer.
I have come across many examples of this type of discussion: http://forums.asp.net/t/1055385.aspx
It must be possible to create "Drag n Drop File Upload" functionality without purchasing 3rd party software and also avoiding Java and ActiveX add-ins.
From what I understand, Firefox has behavior which will allow the retrieval of a file path for uploading when a file is dragged and "dropped" over a browser window.
1st prize would be to be able to drop a folder onto a designated area in an IE browser window, and then to upload the whole folder structure.
I do not want to limit the answer to traditional Web POST file upload methods. FTP and WebDAV solutions are also welcome.
