Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist

The Front Panel

The Front Panel is a collection of controls and other functions put together for easier and faster access for users. As a consequence, its drag and drop behaviors are heavily dependent upon the context of the destination. For example, if the destination is a printer, then print it. If the destination is a subpanel, then install it. Most applications will not vary in behavior quite as broadly as the Front Panel.
