    Question Drag & drop in web based vb application


    I am developing this content management system which display content/files in a hierarchical order.

    I would like to implement download from the webpage and upload to the webpage using drag and drop functionality (i.e. like when we move a file from one folder to another in a windows enviornment, we just click on it drag it to the destination and release the mice button.

    It is implementable in a windows based application but I would like to know if the similar functionality can be implemented in web based application using VB as core language.

    Not allowed, in most cases. Use Silverlight, and VB.Net, maybe...

    Yes, this could be done. But you would have to mix some major JavaScripting in on the client side browser for the actual mouse interactions. Unless you are very good with ASP.NET and JavaScript, this isn't going to be easy.
