Folks'es,

I'm trying to implement a DnD in a TreeViewer.
I noticed that the DragSourceEvent object passed to dragStart, dragSetData and dragFinished are different.
So what can I use them for?

Thanks Jan, but I've been there. It doesn't really explain what the DragSourceEvent object can be used for. Obviously not to pass data between the different methods that are being called...

Then look at the javadoc of the org.eclipse.swt.dnd.DragSourceListener. Every method has a description saying what field is in or out.

right, but it doesn't answer my question: what is the semantic of the event object?
It would have thought that it is the same object being passed to the different methods, so that I could use event.data to pass application specific information...
