Hi everybody,

I am trying to implement drag & drop functionality to my GEF4 application.

I have parent nodes (SWComponent) and child nodes (SWFunction). SWFunctions can be added to SWComponents.

Drag & drop works fine if I implement it for SWComponentPart or SWFunctionPart only. Therefore I use:

adapterMapBinder.addBinding(AdapterKey.defaultRole()).to(FXTransformPolicy.class);
adapterMapBinder.addBinding(AdapterKey.defaultRole()).to(FXTranslateSelectedOnDragPolicy.class);

But If I implement it for both SWComponent and SWFunction I get a lot of errors if I try to drag a SWFunction within a SWComponent.
(Draging a SWFunction or SWComponent within RootPart still works)

The first Error occures in AbstractTransactionPolicy -> checkUninitialized() and says "Already initialized"
I suppose this happens because I bind FXTransformPolicy to both SWComponentPart and SWFunctionPart?
Is this not allowed?
What do I have to do to enable drag and drop for SWFunctions within SWComponents while SWComponents can still be dragged.

Thanks,
Thomas

You will need to replace the default ITargetPolicyResoler (GEF4) resp. IHandlerResolver (GEF 5.0) with a custom implementation that prevents that both parts are drag targets.

Your resolver will probably have to only resolve the function part as target when its located inside a component part (and exclude the component part).
