Drag and Drop in Logic Editor Example [message #53234] Thu, 09 January 2003 21:31 Go to next message

Could someone please tell me what is the functionality of
FileTransferDragSourceListener? Why it set the drag source event data to
"some text"? When will that get invoke?

And what about LogicTemplateTransferDropTargetListener? Is this for the
drag and drop on the palette only? When will
TextTransferDropTargetListener get invoke?

Thanks.

LogicTemplateTransferDropListener is just the
TemplateTransferDropTargetListener from gef.dnd tuned to return
LogicTemplateFactories. It supports dropping Templates dragged from
whereever they are and calling a Factory to create Editparts from that
Templates- ok usually that would be a palette.
Concerning the other two: They are not used. Perhaps we should not assume
that every class in Logicexample makes sense. After all, it is still being
worked on.

Thanks. All Drop Target Listener are initialize in
initializeGraphicalViewer() of LogicEditor. How call GET tell the difference
between different Transfer Drop Target Listeners and decide which one to
use for different transfer? It just call addDropTargetListener() adding them
to the graphical viewer one by one?

Thanks in advance.

protected void initializeGraphicalViewer() {

getGraphicalViewer().setContents(getLogicDiagram());

getGraphicalViewer().addDropTargetListener(

new LogicTemplateTransferDropTargetListener(getGraphicalViewer() ));

getGraphicalViewer().addDropTargetListener(

new TextTransferDropTargetListener(getGraphicalViewer(),
TextTransfer.getInstance()));

}

The active listener is determined by
DelegatingDropAdapter.updateCurrentListener(DropTargetEvent) based on
each listener's isEnabled(DropTargetEvent) method (in
AbstractTrasferDropTargetListener). First, isEnabled(...) checks to see
if the transfer type is supported by the listener, based on the transfer
type you used when you registered the listener with the viewer (like in
LogicEditor.initializeGraphicalViewer()). If it passes this test, it
checks to see if there is an EditPart at the drop location that
understands the target request. If so, this listener is enabled and the
DelegatingDropAdapter stops looking.

the TextTransferDropTargetListener is used to drag text from anywhere and drop it on the label.

and i am also looking why FileTransferDragSourceListener is used, if any one know the answer then please do reply here..,
