Hi everybode,

I have some problems implementing DnD. I want to drag items from a view to
a graphical editor. That works fine with one item (I'm using the
'AbstractTransferDropTargetListener'). But now I want to be able to drag
and drop multiple items. The problem is on the TargetListener side,
because it internally request the objetc creation. so, do I have to
provide my own implmentation of a TargetDropListener or can I somehow use
the 'AbstractTransferDropTargetListener'?

Perhaps you could extend AbstractTransferDropTargetListener and provide
your own implementation for #getObjectsBeingDropped(), i.e. get the
transfer object, cast it into Java object and then in StructuredSelection
probably... then you could examine what's in the selection and create a
list of objects that are being dropped in the graphical viewer (model
elements most likely). Then using these objects and mouse location a
request can be created and used to create the command by edit policies.
I'm not an expert in this area, but perhaps this would help.

Thanks for the idea. Now I've overriden the handleDrop event and create a
new request for each object being dropped and it works.
