https drag and drop

by ReportingMD » Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:32 am

We are evaluating CompleteFTP and have turned on HTTPS access.

When I use FireFox I can log in and then drag a file into the file window the icon for the file I am dragging changes the file is automatically moved (uploaded) to the folder.

When I do the same thing in IE (v11 in compatibility mode), but the result is that IE gives me options to save or open the file I was dragging (not move or upload the file). The only option I see in IE is to use the Upload button and select the file from my file system.

So, is there a setting in IE to allow Drop and Drag?

Unfortunately this is a bug that we weren't aware of. We're still trying to diagnose it and will get back to you tomorrow.

It turns out that the reason why it behaves like this in IE is simply that drag-and-drop support is not enabled. The behaviour that you're seeing is therefore the browser trying to open the file that you're dragging onto it; it's got nothing to do with our file-manager software. I think the reason why it's not enabled in IE is that IE didn't support drag-and-drop until relatively recently (IE10).

I've had a look at the complexity of adding drag-and-drop support in IE and it looks like it's non-trivial so it's not something we can promise you in the short term. I'll add it to our list of feature requests though.

Thanks

I appreciate the information. What doesn't make sense is that yo indicated that IE supports drop and drag as of v10 and I am on v11. Is there a setting in IT that I can change to turn this on?

I'm sorry I wasn't clear. Although IE10+ supports it, our drag-and-drop code doesn't appear to be compatible with it. I experimented with it a bit and managed to get the file-view to highlight when I dragged a file over it, but the drop events didn't fire as expected. I don't expect it to be too difficult to get it to work, but we just don't have time at the moment.

Got it!

This will be a significant feature for us, as we are trying to replace our ShareFile site and it is supported in it. Our clients are not PC savvy and Dropping a file is much easier than navigating to it.

OK, I see, so we have a new version of the web-interface with IE drag-and-drop available for you to try. Could you please e-mail [url=mailto:support@enterprisedt.com]support@enterprisedt.com[/url] so that we can send it to you?
