Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist

No Drop-Only Targets

The Common Desktop Environment does not support the concept of a specific control or graphical target used only for drops. Any control in the human interface that has selectable items can be dropped upon and should provide drop zone feedback. This includes data panes, scrolling lists, and text entry fields. The operation that takes place upon the drop should be consistent with the users expectations for that application type.
