Drag and Drop files from other places to universal apps(windows store) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a possiblity to drag and drop a file from windows desktop or from other windows store app to my application. I tried searching samples, but it says about dragging an image with in the solution.

    The best example is drag and drop files into recycle bin. Is there a way possible for modern app(instead of recycle bin), or give an user similar experince as the same.

    If not windows8/windows8.1,could we expect in windows 10.

    I believe if it is not possible with XAML/c#, the same holds good for HTML5/JS

    Thanks & Regards Tejaswi Chandrapatla
