Web Browser Control -- View HTTPS web contents as web folder

P: n/a
Hi,

I apologies if this message was posted before.

I need to develop an application which connects to HTTPS website and
show the contents (web folders) just like windows explorer, so i can
apply drag n drop, cut, copy and paste operations. The functionality
should be similar to the Internet Explorer File --Open --Open as
Web Folder.

Currently, i am using VC#.Net 2.0 as a programming language, Web
Browser component in my application. Thanks in advance.

I think you are underestimating the challenges here. A regular website
is not amenable to this type of usage. Even with WebDAV this is not a
simple thing. Trying to write your own from scratch is non-trivial,
and goes quite a way beyond some simple WebBrowser / DHTML tricks.

My advice: look for an existing WebDAV client, or use one of the other
similar approaches (see below).

Hi Marc,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Do i have any other choice apart from WebDAV client implementation? If
NO then is it possible that you can further guide me from this
prospective.

regards,

No and No; sorry (I don't know nearly enough about this topic to be
very useful).

To clarify - the first "No" was that "I'm not aware of any suitable
mechanism"; there might be one...

What about just using one of the pre-rolled CMS offerings?
