drag and drop control

Posts: n/a
Hi All
I am developing a web application where the users should be able to upload files to the server by just dragging a file from the windows explorer or the desktop onto an area on the web browser. Now when i drag a file on to the browser IE tries to open it. i have tried to use the onDragDrop event in the javascript but i am not able to capture the path of the file that has been dropped. Is javascript enough to attain such a functionality or do i need to develop an activex or a custom control. Any suggestions on how to resolve are most welcome
Thanks in advanc

Hi Per
Yes i found that it is not possible with Javascript. So i am trying to make an activex control. But still trying to find out the best methods. If i use dotnet then i might need the dotnet runtime on the clients machine. So i might have to use vb6 but we also get the warning unless we get it signed by some authirity. If you have any clues can you suggest something helpfu
