Drag/drop is already enabled! Users can drag files from their desktop or windows explorer to the Multi File Uploader and they will be appear in the list for uploading.

Silverilght cant show a list of files on the client pc. It doesnt have access to that. You can use the select files button to manually select files from the client pc.

thx for the reply.

happen to come accross this website on the google search. seems that silverlight4 can do this.

can something like this be done for the upload component also.

like user can drag drop from the upload component itself rather than dragging the files from explorer/desktop?

For this to work the silverilght application it has to run out of browser and has to be a trusted application.  Then it only has acces to the MyDocuments/Videos/etc folder.
It won't be implemented in the Silverlight Multi File Uploader, but you can create it yourself it you want.
