    Big problem in flex & html integration - drag&drop

    boliz Level 1
      I need to drag some object from html to Flash object but I cant get a grip on the Mouse events!!!
      When I enter a flash object with mouse pressed (from outside) the flash obj don’t know that I'm in it with mouse down!!
      I tried some work around using externalInterface like

      <object classid="clsi… " … onmouseenter="startDrag()" >

      But it didn’t solved it because I cant dispatch an mouse up event. (when I come from outside with the button pressed he doesn’t know that is mouse button is down).
      Can I make the flash to know that mouse is down manually when entering from outside?
      Is there any work around for this issue?

      Help me please.

          To my knowledge this isn't possible. The Flash Player runs within an object (eg, ActiveX for IE) within the browser/HTML page. But the Flash Player is limited to the events can receive from the outside.

          Post your question on the Flash forums as this is really a Flash issue. Someone there might be able to tell you how to this, if it is possible.

            i am working in flex, why it is impossible to trigger a mouseDown event from outside? and when you release the mouse in the flash it will fire...
            what i learn in my not long life is that their is nothing impossible!!
            you just need to think out of the box... if anyone have some solution to my problem i will be grateful!!!

            Edit: in FF i get the mouseUp event from the JS but on IE i wont.
