    Hi all - nooby here scoping an application for work - just would like to know if something is possible in telerik (or even silverlight generally) - or am I dreaming.

    Given a treeview (or other control), is it possible to drag a file from the browser to a running application?
    eg. From Windows Explorer, you can drag a jpg file into Word?

    I did this ages ago in a Windows Application in VB6/VBA with with OLE, a Treeview Node and  Data.Files.Add filename.

    More to the point, if I drag a particular file type from Windows Explorer into my target application (Revit) then I get the behaviour in Revit that I am expecting (which is insert the object etc etc) Autodesk sort of have this in iDrop, but I want to have more control over things.

    Cheers,
    Kon.

    Hi Kon,

    In Silverlight you can handle drop from other applications similar to our RadUpload control. However Silverlight does not provide API for OleDragDrop operations to drag from the browser to other applications.

    All the best,
