Re: [QF-Test] Drag and Drop HTML 5 - cannot have it working

Hello Gwen,

normally DRAG_FROM/DROP_TO should do the trick because it works at OS
level like a real user does.

However, in this special case I could confirm your problem that the
DRAG_FROM hangs. I guess that there's some Javascript code that blocks
the event thread of the browser, waiting for the drag to continue
while QF-Test waits for the Thread to become available.

There are ways to work around that. I'll look into it and get back to

Best regards,
