    Internet Explorer reverse file browsing

    Is there a way to display the path of file in an input field by dragging & dropping the file from a local folder into the field?

    Not that I'm aware of. I know that the browser is drag-and-drop aware, but individual webpages are not.

    you have to make an applet or activex control to accomplish that. And since the applet or activex will access local files, you have to make it "signed".

    had to attach the code, since it wouldn't render here as needed...

    oops! I forgot to mention: that example was tested/intended for active desktop & local offline play; it probably wouldn't be too useful otherwise...
