Class DragSourceEvent

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.util.EventObject
      extended by java.awt.dnd.DragSourceEvent
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable
Direct Known Subclasses:
DragSourceDragEvent, DragSourceDropEvent

public class DragSourceEvent
extends EventObject

This class is the base class for DragSourceDragEvent and DragSourceDropEvent.

DragSourceEvents are generated whenever the drag enters, moves over, or exits a drop site, when the drop action changes, and when the drag ends. The location for the generated DragSourceEvent specifies the mouse cursor location in screen coordinates at the moment this event occured.

In a multi-screen environment without a virtual device, the cursor location is specified in the coordinate system of the initiator GraphicsConfiguration. The initiator GraphicsConfiguration is the GraphicsConfiguration of the Component on which the drag gesture for the current drag operation was recognized. If the cursor location is outside the bounds of the initiator GraphicsConfiguration, the reported coordinates are clipped to fit within the bounds of that GraphicsConfiguration.

In a multi-screen environment with a virtual device, the location is specified in the corresponding virtual coordinate system. If the cursor location is outside the bounds of the virtual device the reported coordinates are clipped to fit within the bounds of the virtual device.

Constructor Detail

DragSourceEvent

public DragSourceEvent(DragSourceContext dsc)
Construct a DragSourceEvent given a specified DragSourceContext. The coordinates for this DragSourceEvent are not specified, so getLocation will return null for this event.

Parameters:
dsc - the DragSourceContext
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if dsc is null.
See Also:
getLocation()

DragSourceEvent

public DragSourceEvent(DragSourceContext dsc,
                       int x,
                       int y)
Construct a DragSourceEvent given a specified DragSourceContext, and coordinates of the cursor location.

Parameters:
dsc - the DragSourceContext
x - the horizontal coordinate for the cursor location
y - the vertical coordinate for the cursor location
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if dsc is null.
