    I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but is it at all possible to determine a file's path from being dragged and dropped from the local user's PC onto the web browser, insert that into the upload field, and then submit for upload automatically? Even if the drag and drop portion isn't possible, could a file be programmatically uploaded (via Javascript or otherwise) given a known path, such that the user would not need to select it each time they wanted to upload it. Say I just wanted to remember the last 5 uploaded files and have them prepoulated for upload.

    P.S. Can the Telerik SilverLight Upload Control be of use for this scenerio?

    Hi Xorcist,

    RadUpload currently does  not support such functionality (drag and drop files) and it is not possible to select a file via JavaScript due to a security reasons. The good news are that we are going to provide drag and drop upload functionality to AsyncUpload for the browsers that support it (FireFox, Chrome, Safari) for the next Q. Meanwhile, I suggest that you take a look at the Silverlgiht upload which currently supports file upload using drag and drop.

    All the best,

    HI,

    Is there any way that I can drag and drop outlook item to web application  using rad controls(radgrid) and save the outlook file  to server? I am developing a web application where I can drag outlook items from my outlook. I have already done this on windows application where i used listview and drag the outlook items and save to server.

    Thanks,

    Hello Xorcist,

    Unfortunately due to some unexpected difficulties we've had to postpone the drag and drop functionality for RadAsyncUpload. As for your scenario, I am not sure that it is possible to upload outlook appointments directly into the browser, because dragging them from outlook, they are not files nor byte streams. As for the drag and drop for RadAsyncUpload we will do our best to have it for Q2.
