My desktop app allows to drag&drop files,folders and links from browsers into it..

Im converting the  app to Intraweb.. For now users copy/paste

I need to allow a DROP-like functionality from a Dragged item from desktop or another browser
on TIWMemo, TIWEdit and TIWImage.

Is there a way to do this with and discard it so the browser will not react to the dropped object?

IM thinking possibly using mAsyncMouseOver or some other event to check for the data.

TIA

You are ruled by the Internet Browser limitations.
For example the following JavaScript page is an example and will show you how to catch drag-and-drop in the Internet Explorer but if you try it in FireFox it does not catch.
