Hello ...

I have a widget that displays web cam images. I want to allow the user to save the current image to the Desktop.

I can make a widget.system call involving "curl" that grabs the image off of the web cam server and turns that into a file, but the image on the server might not match the one currently displayed in the widget. (The camera image updates every minute; the widget updates variably upon user input.)

I've tried to implement drag-and-drop without success. The image drags just fine, but it won't drop onto the Desktop (or any other image-accepting application window.) Is there some trick to saying "Drop me anywhere!"?


Any suggestions greatly appreciated.


Regards,

"Day Late" Don
