Hi guys, I'm new to JavaFX and e(fx)clipse. I just created an e4 application in pure JavaFX. The drag and drop feature works pretty well. However I found that I can drag a window/view out of the workbench of my application. So I'm wondering, is it possible to make dragging window/view out of workbench possible? Thanks. Smile

AFAIK this feature has not been implemented yet.

The current release does not support this but the latest nightly from head does if you start with -Ddetachdrag.enabled=true

The reason you need to turn this explicitly is that we are then NOT use standard JavaFX-DnD but emulate the DnD-Feedback and Drop-Target-Detection so it has a slightly different behavior.
