Hi all,

I'm stuck in this problem.

Is it possible to do drag-and-drop operation between swt and swing
component?

Deadline is killing me.

Please help me out.

Thanks,

SWT uses the native clipboard mechanism and I believe in JDK 1.4.2 Swing
does too. However, there are many "types" that can be exchanged and I have
not tested that SWT and Swing use the same types on each platform. The best
way to confirm that the data type you want can be exchanged is to test it.

We had to do this, and to be safe we used the TextTransfer type, so in
essence we were dragging and dropping strings. NOT the best thing to do
(now our app even accepts drops from text editors ;) but it's what we're
doing for now... We plan to rewrite out our Swing code as time permits.
