Add back the file drag and drop functionality

Reported by: madarche Owned by: gracinet
Priority: P2 Milestone: CPS 3.5.7
Component: CPS (global) Version: 3.5.2
Severity: normal Keywords:


There use to be file drag n' drop into a document in CPS. Even if it was not widely advertised.

This functionality was done through external browser extensions. At least a Firefox extension had been developed to do that. Later on that same extension has been modified to work on Nuxeo EP.

Nowadays with recent browsers using an extension is not needed anymore, at least with recent browsers like Firefox >= 3.6. So the plan is to implement that drag and drop functionality back with the minimum of code relying simply on the now standard API to do drag and drop and file transfer.

Demo and simple code available here:  http://hacks.mozilla.org/2009/12/file-drag-and-drop-in-firefox-3-6/
