      "Please select valid file to upload" when drag n drop

      Your post

      I found a mention of this in the release notes for v1 but that's really it...

      http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12541/~/filemaker-server-13.0v1-release-notes

       

      Does anyone know why it does this?  Is there no workaround for drag and drop on webdirect?  We are stuck with right click + insert?

       

      Thanks

          Thank you for the post. 

           

          From the article you linked above:

           

          "7.2. Web users who use Internet Explorer to access a FileMaker WebDirect solution cannot drag and drop files into container fields. These web users may see the error message “Please select a valid file to upload.” Web users who use Internet Explorer should use the “Insert > Insert Into Container” menu item to insert files into container fields."

           

          This is a limitation of WebDirect when using Internet Explorer specifically. I tested drag and drop into an interactive container with both Safari and Chrome and the file inserts without error. 

           

          The workaround would be to use one of the other tested browsers.
