Hello,

would it be possible to make the new draggable applet optional browser-modal when dragged?

I think the feature could be used in many situations like "floating windows" in the browser or for for widgets like the dzone voting plugin for firefox. An option to scroll with page and an other to disable OS task bar integration when dragged would make it perfect ;).

[edit]
thinking about it, this probably wouldn't be a trivial task to implement but this is what customers will expect from RIAs earlier or later.

Blocking the browser especially from a dragged-out applet is risky. Even when the applet is in the web page as normal we currently only block the browser with modal dialogs on the Windows platform. There are no standard APIs for integrating modal dialogs with the browser.
