Drag and drop in wxWebConnect

Postby jonmmorgan on Wed Dec 29, 2010 1:10 am

We use a custom drag and drop handler to accept files dropped onto the application and process them. This is a custom version of wxFileDropTarget, and is installed as a drop target on the main frame for the application. However, the drag and drop handler does not appear to be properly invoked when the mouse is dragged over the web control (presumably because all mouse events, etc. are being handled by XULRunner rather than by wxWidgets). Has any thought been given to supporting drag and drop events in the standard wxWidgets way from a web control? Certainly Mozilla supports drag & drop events (documented at, and that drag and drop model seems at least superficially similar to the drag and drop model in wxWidgets.
