Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.swt.dnd
Class DropTargetEffect

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

org.eclipse.swt.dnd.DropTargetAdapter
      extended by 
org.eclipse.swt.dnd.DropTargetEffect
All Implemented Interfaces:
EventListener, DropTargetListener, org.eclipse.swt.internal.SWTEventListener
Direct Known Subclasses:
StyledTextDropTargetEffect, TableDropTargetEffect, TreeDropTargetEffect

public class DropTargetEffect
extends DropTargetAdapter

This class provides a default drag under effect during a drag and drop. The current implementation does not provide any visual feedback.

The drop target effect has the same API as the DropTargetAdapter so that it can provide custom visual feedback when a DropTargetEvent occurs.

Classes that wish to provide their own drag under effect can extend the DropTargetEffect and override any applicable methods in DropTargetAdapter to display their own drag under effect.

The feedback value is either one of the FEEDBACK constants defined in class DND which is applicable to instances of this class, or it must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those DND effect constants.

Feedback:
FEEDBACK_EXPAND, FEEDBACK_INSERT_AFTER, FEEDBACK_INSERT_BEFORE, FEEDBACK_NONE, FEEDBACK_SELECT, FEEDBACK_SCROLL

Since:
3.3
