How to let the user move something over the screen? [message #1058477] Tue, 14 May 2013 10:16 Go to next message

Can somebody give me a hint how to implement the following:
The user should click on something, let's say a label, and then move it until the mouse is released.
In the RCP version of our application this is done with events of MouseDown, MouseMove and MouseUp.
But in RAP there is no MouseMove and I want to let the user really see this label moving, not only jumping from the old to the new position!

I'm sure it is possible to get that functionality somehow, the question is just HOW??
Maybe with drag and drop, but there is actually no need to copy something to the clipboard (the DND functionality I'll need later, too, but that will be a different post Wink).

Thanks for any idea!
Regards, Julia

I use final Transfer[] transfers = new Transfer[] { LocalSelectionTransfer.getTransfer() };
When doing drag and drop within tree viewers as it does not copy stuff to the clipboard. As a consequence it is only useful if dragging and dropping within eclipse.
