    Hi, we have developped an application that make extensive use of drag and drop for image using Silverlight. Problem is that Drag and Drop wont work on Mac. I read alot of threads on forum and tried a custom solution provided by your staff in 2010 (306688_UploadDropFilesSample). But, nothing seems to work.

    Hi Charles,

    Drag-and-drop events in Silverlight have some differences depending on the platform. In particular, drag-and-drop input actions are reported differently on a Macintosh computer. Therefore, Silverlight-based applications that run on a Macintosh must use different techniques to process a drag-and-drop action.

    However we cannot implement this logic in the RadUpload control since the drag/drop actions under Mac are not reported to the plugin and therefore the RadUpload control cannot handle them. This is why you will need to write your own custom logic to handle the drag/drop events.

    We've created the CodeLibrary solution you mentioned based on information provided by Microsoft on how to handle Drag and Drop for a Silverlight 4 applications under Mac. However, after Silverlight 5 was released our customers have reported different drag/drop limitations under Mac. Unfortunately at the moment we're not aware of a workaround for these issue.

    Kind regards,
