Class DropTargetContext

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.dnd.DropTargetContext
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class DropTargetContext
extends Object
implements Serializable

A DropTargetContext is created whenever the logical cursor associated with a Drag and Drop operation coincides with the visible geometry of a Component associated with a DropTarget. The DropTargetContext provides the mechanism for a potential receiver of a drop operation to both provide the end user with the appropriate drag under feedback, but also to effect the subsequent data transfer if appropriate.

1.2

          Called when associated with the DropTargetContextPeer.
protected  Transferable createTransferableProxy(Transferable t, boolean local)
          Creates a TransferableProxy to proxy for the specified Transferable.
 void dropComplete(boolean success)
          This method signals that the drop is completed and if it was successful or not.
 Component getComponent()
          This method returns the Component associated with this DropTargetContext.
protected  DataFlavor[] getCurrentDataFlavors()
          get the available DataFlavors of the Transferable operand of this operation.
protected  List<DataFlavor> getCurrentDataFlavorsAsList()
          This method returns a the currently available DataFlavors of the Transferable operand as a java.util.List.
 DropTarget getDropTarget()
          This method returns the DropTarget associated with this DropTargetContext.
protected  int getTargetActions()

protected  Transferable getTransferable()
          get the Transferable (proxy) operand of this operation
protected  boolean isDataFlavorSupported(DataFlavor df)
          This method returns a boolean indicating if the given DataFlavor is supported by this DropTargetContext.
protected  void rejectDrag()
          reject the Drag.
protected  void rejectDrop()
          called to signal that the drop is unacceptable.
 void removeNotify()
          Called when disassociated with the DropTargetContextPeer.
protected  void setTargetActions(int actions)
