Just for the fun (and it appears useful), I added drag and drop
functionality to a HTMLViewer Control. It worked fine until I get tired
to open / close some folders to drag some html files.
I decided to create an alias to one main html from folder #2 in its
parent folder. I tested it and get in trouble: the window is white!
I added a MsgBox to report the FolderItem URLPath (what I use) _AND_ the
AbsolutePath (as a check), run the project and drop an alias (to a valid
html file) twice: once from the parent directory, the second time from
the directory where the original lives.
Same results: the alias is not resolved. I get the alias pathname, not
the pathname to the original file.
I do not think that this is an intended behavior, but after so many
years I work with a computer, I already things like that: an old
technology that takes time (by their developer) to come in the
application (both OS: Mac OS X and Windows, I don't remember for Linux).
Thanks for your input,
