I have a client that wants to be able to have a user COPY a portion of a report or webscreen and paste it into a web app.
I see that a WebCanvas has an AcceptDrop method. So ...
When a user COPIES a section of the screen, they really don't have a picture file on their computer ... yet. If they had the picture file, then they could drag-n-drop. I know they can past text into a WebTextArea, but I assume that's because they have the text in the computer. That is, in the computer that they are browsing with.
I suspect a picture held in the copy/paste buffer may be different. But you all can correct my wrongness on this assumption.
So ... assume that a user has a browser and they want to copy a section of a PDF into a Xojo Webapp, what do we think we can do to accomplish that.
What I need to understand is ... if a user can select an area in a desktop app (PDF viewer or Browser) and PASTE that picture into other applications, can they paste that into a Xojo control (WebCanvas, WebImageWell, what ever). Assume that they have grabbed a picture area (no text).
P.S. Snarky remarks are OK.
