Drag & Drop Behavior Different on Mac? [message #489695] Mon, 05 October 2009 15:24 Go to next message

I'm noticing in Eclipse 3.4 an inconsistency between Mac OS 10.5 and Windows XP in terms of Drag & Drop behavior. On Windows, adding a DropTarget to the top parent seems to be cascading down to the area of the child Composites, but on Mac I have to add individual DropTargets to each child Composite.

Is this a known issue, or even expected behavior?

Hi,

Platform differences like this are not expected, so I've logged
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=291485 . It works like
Windows on all other platforms, including OS X-Cocoa, but since the earliest
Cocoa implementation of swt is 3.5 this likely isn't an option for you. I
think the only workaround is to add listeners to each control in the
hierarchy (maybe only do this if SWT.getPlatform() returns "carbon").
