mdb-file-upload : Unable to get Drag and Drop upload to work

Topic: mdb-file-upload : Unable to get Drag and Drop upload to work in IE11

Bhargava asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior File should be uploaded when dragged on to mdb-file-input div, upload image changes to an icon of file mime type and a remove option would be visible.

Actual behavior When drag and drop is performed, no changes occur in dom and file is not uploaded. Issue only occurs in IE11.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) enter image description here

Code in Use:
<mdb-file-upload #uploader [height]="height" (fileRemoved)="fileRemoved()" (fileAdded)="fileAdded($event)"></mdb-file-upload>

Please let me know if i need to update anything on my end? Thanks for the help.

Due to the fact that we want to expand our product with modern solutions, we decided to drop official support for older browsers.

Of course we will take a closer look at this problem and add required changes if they don't limit the functionality of the plugin in any way.

It looks like IE11 doesn't support drag and drop feature for file inputs, so unfortunately we won't be able to provide a fix for this problem.
