Thank you for posting this Eli.
This looks like it could be quite useful for what I have been trying
to accomplish, with automated testing. The article talks about the
issues with synthetic events that I have been struggling with and
provides solutions to overcome them.
This is an example of drag and drop being tested.
I will have to keep looking into this, but I'm hoping for the best.
