moderated Re: Drag & drop problem - JAWS17
Hi Aaron,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
beside your decision to update JAWS here are two things about Drag & Drop and scripting.
To my opinion Drag & Drop is sometimes hard to handle especially by using scripting. Sometimes it's necessary to drag the object right onto another object, sometimes you need to drag the object slightly before or slightly after an object. Sometimes it's possible to release the mouse and the object gets dropped and sometimes you need to press enter key to end the drop. So to find out what to do with drag & drop you need sometimes sighted help who described exactly where the cursor should be placed. In writing a JAWS script to do this work for you sometimes you need to add some extra pixels before or after or press enter key to finish the drop down.
Speaking of scripting in different JAWS versions: I'm using JAWS a long time and did a lot of scripting and I've never discovered problems in using my old scripts in new versions. All the old scripting key words still exists in newer JAWS versions and to verify this you can look up the JAWS functions you are using in your scripts in FSDN.chm, the help file from FS with all available JAWS functions (except UIA stuff).
All the best
