Cross Application Drag and Drop

Post by andrefelipe » Thu Feb 12, 2015 8:46 pm

Hi there,

I want to drag and drop from my desktop or any windows folder, to my browser, to test our file upload form. Everything is ok, the code seems to work, but when the mouse moves to the browser, looks like it loses the file.

Here is an example:

Code: Select all

repo.Desktop.File.MoveTo();
Mouse.ButtonDown(System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left);
repo.Browser.Container.MoveTo();
Mouse.ButtonUp(System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left);
I can drop from a corner in my desktop to its center, but when I try to drop it on browser, doesn't work. :(

Any suggestion ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi andrefelipe,

What you could try is to add a higher move time, so to use for instance the following code:
repo.Browser.Container.MoveTo(new Duration(10000));

It works, but the screen where I start drag, can't be maximized, and must be in the front. If it's maximized, drag and drop doesn't work. But it's fine, everything is running now.

Thank you very much!
