    Drag and Drop File Upload

    I'm looking in to a solution that ties in with PHP that allows uploading files via drag and drop. So far, I've only located a Java applet (Thin File) as a possible solution.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of an uploader that uses AJAX or Flash.

    Thanks

    jQuery has drag-n-drop capabilities; that's where I'd look.

    Flash might be able to. Ajax/Javascript cannot because the type="file" form field is read only and javascript cannot set it, nor can ajax/javascript upload a file by it self.
    Finding out HOW to do something is called research, i.e. keep searching until you find the answer. After you attempt to do something and cannot solve a problem with it yourself, would be when you ask others for help.
