Can't find this bug number! But case is simple: 1. Drag and Drop within a single XUL document. XUL is not local (not Application).

First of all, there is no detailed documentation around about Drag and Drop for this case. Secondly, this doesn't work in the XULPlanet tutorial, nor in this case:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<?xml-stylesheet href="chrome://global/skin/" type="text/css"?>

<window title="Widget Dragger" id="test-window" orient="horizontal" xmlns="<…ekeeper/>">

<script src="dragboard.js"/></script>

<stack id="board" canDrop="true" style="width:300px; height: 300px; max-width: 300px; max-height: 300px; background-color:yellow;" ondragover="return DoDragOver(event)" ondragdrop="return DoDrop(event)"> </stack> <vbox> <image id="o1" src="sveta.jpg" style="width:40px;height:40px;" elem="button" ondraggesture="return DoStartDrag(event)"/> </vbox> </window>

Where dragboard.js is:

function DoDragOver(event){ window.status="dragOver"; return true; }

function DoDrop(event){ window.status="dragDrop"; return true; }

function DoStartDrag(event){ return true; }

Actually, ondraggesture and ondragover work fine, but dragdrop handler is never called.

Maybe it is a silly metter to have a Drag and Drop working. Maybe it is really working. But how to know this without ANY documentation and ANY reference?!!

Please, tell me I'm wrong!
