Description Chris Petersen 2006-04-09 19:24:11 PDT
After I drag n drop a image file to a input field, the file path doesn't appear in the field. However, the Edit menu does indicate the drag was successful since the Edit menu shows "Undo Paste"

Note: I'm only able to reproduce this image (GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF) or PDF files.

1. With TOT Webkit , open test case "sample_input.html"
2. Drag a image file so that is hovers over the input field. Notice you should see a caret as you hover over the input field. When this occurs, mouse up.
3. Instead of displaying the file's path in the field, nothing is displayed.

File path for image file should be displayed in the field. Instead, no file path is displayed.

Yes, the only occurs with native text fields.

For non-image items, the paste result is incorrect as well: instead of the file path, a file: URL is being pasted.

While this is a native text field regression, we think the symptom is mild, so
we're moving it to P2.
