Method Detail

getIndex

public int getIndex()
Returns the index where dropped data should be placed in the list. Interpretation of the value depends on the drop mode set on the associated component. If the drop mode is either DropMode.USE_SELECTION or DropMode.ON, the return value is an index of a row in the list. If the drop mode is DropMode.INSERT, the return value refers to the index where the data should be inserted. If the drop mode is DropMode.ON_OR_INSERT, the value of isInsert() indicates whether the index is an index of a row, or an insert index.

-1 indicates that the drop occurred over empty space, and no index could be calculated.

Returns:
the drop index

isInsert

public boolean isInsert()
Returns whether or not this location represents an insert location.

Returns:
whether or not this is an insert location

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string representation of this drop location. This method is intended to be used for debugging purposes, and the content and format of the returned string may vary between implementations.

Overrides:
toString in class TransferHandler.DropLocation
Returns:
a string representation of this drop location
