Drag-and-drop on Motif [message #170783] Mon, 07 March 2005 14:16 Go to next message

Dear All,

I have drag and drop working in Win32 and MacOSX but not in Motif (both
linux/solaris).

The visual editor works correctly in Win32/MacOSX/Motif when one drag a
model to its new place. However, drag-and-drop from palette view to the
visual editor is only working on Win32/MacOSX. I understand that in Motif
it is "click-and-drop" (i.e., click on the icon on palette view and a
second click will 'drop' the model on to the visual editor) but I cannot
get this behaviour working.

On clicking the icon on my palette view, I do not even observe the cursor
change to the "add" cursor. Can someone point me to resources which I can
then workout what I had missed.

Many thanks in advance,
sinlee

Dear Randy,

Oops. You are right. I forgotten about the middle button (and the click
both left-and-right buttons to simulate middle button).

I tried it out but it still refuse to allow me to drop anything from
palette to visual editor. I have no such problem in Win32/MacOSX.

Indeed, I have no problem with the logic example on any OS.

However, my own palette, which I extends from
TemplateTransferDropTargetListener, never has its getFactory(Object
template) method called when I use Motif. Can you suggest ways to debug
this problem?

Many thanks in advance,
Sinlee

Do you have a drop target on the graphical viewer? You need both a source
and target.
