Outlook attachment files drag and drop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am able to drag and drop files from file explorer to html 5 web site.  Why can't I drag and drop outlook attachment to the same web site?  What is the difference between the two?

    In terms of development, what need to be done to make it work?  If there is more than one way, please, list them.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    >>can't I drag and drop outlook attachment to the same web site?

    Do you mean that you can't upload outlook files to the website by drag and drop? If so, I'm afraid it is more related to whether HTML5 control support the drag and drop operation from Outlook Application. As a quick workaround, you could drop and drag the file to Windows Explorer and then drop & drag to the HTML5 control.​
