Talk:Drag and drop

There are problems listed with drag and drop, but I think they are meant for the X implementation, and since this article is about drag/drop the concept, those problems should be removed from this discussion.
Which ones do you mean? Today, the listed problems are "the same button selects and drags items" and "the target of the dropping can be hidden under other objects". Both appear at least under Windows, too. JöG 21:39, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
I added this cartoon just bc it illustrates the notion from another perspective :) I am not the author of that cartoon, and I have nothing to do with its authors. its at: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Dragndrop.png Towsonu2003 08:19, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Patents & Awards
Drag-and-drop is so powerful I wonder if there have been any awards or patents given to it. I'd like to know. FreddyMack 14:11, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Drag and drop history
Are there any sources to the claim that Aporia was the first Windows program to support drag and drop? As this feature first appeared on Mac I'm sure that others tried to implement it on Windows at the same time as Aporia. For now I changed the sentence from "The first drag & drop implementation was..." to "Jeffrey Greenberg claims that the first drag & drop implementation was...".—Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
- Drag and drop was old news on the Mac and even on the Commodore Geos by 1986. Edison (talk) 15:49, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
I added a mention of band-boxing to the article. This could (maybe) be expanded into its own article, but I left it here since it's partially relevant, and I'm not interested in writing the article. Please leave comments on my user page. SharkD (talk) 18:38, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
This is still listed at Category:Wikipedia_requested_screenshots, but does it still need to be? It looks like we have a screen-shot/animation. --NerdBoy1392 <Talk|Contribs> 16:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
