Edit Control File Extensions list not limiting drag and drop files

I am trying to limit the file type for files that are drag and dropped into the edit control. The FileExtensions list has been limited to just one type (in this case ".vb") but I am able to drag and drop any file extension type into the control. Is there something more that needs to be set in order for this to work?

The following is a list of my setup:

Syncfusion version:
Visual Studio version: 7.1.6030

Edit Control Properties:

AllowDrop = True
DropAllFiles = False
FileExtensions = .vb
InsertDroppedFileIntoText = True
InsertMode = True
LoadConfigFile = True

Hi Greg,

The EditControl does seem to allow the opening of files with restricted extensions when dropped. A direct trac incident has been opened for this with the subject line " F61616 - Edit Control File Extensions list not limiting drag and drop files " and the Incident ID is 34444. Could you please follow up with this incident to obtain update regarding the fix of this issue?

Best Regards,
