Drag and Drop between Web Dynpro and FlashIsland


i would like to know if it is or will be possible to capture drag and drop between Web Dynpro components and components inside a FlashIsland (or the FlashIsland itself).

As far as i know by now it is possible to handle (native) D&D events (from "outside") when you are building an AIR application. But a normal Flex Application does not have access to that native D&D manager. So, are there any possibilities to capture a Drop from outside? Are there any future plannings to handle such events?

Thanks in advance,

    I am afraid that it is not possible. I don't believe that you can even do drag and drop between different Islands as they are separate instances of the Flash Player. My understanding is that this is more of a limitation on the way that the browser hosts and sandboxes the Flash player plug-in. I'm not sure there is much that SAP can do about this.
