Interface TransferDropTargetListener

All Superinterfaces:
DropTargetListener, EventListener, SWTEventListener

public interface TransferDropTargetListener extends DropTargetListener
A TransferDropTargetListener is a DropTragetListener that handles one type of SWT Transfer. The purpose of a TransferDropTargetListener is to:
  • Determine enablement for a drop operation. A TransferDropTargetListener will not be used if isEnabled returns false.
  • When enabled, optionally show feedback on the DropTarget.
  • Perform the actual drop
A DelegatingDropAdapter allows these functions to be implemented separately for unrelated types of drags. DelegatingDropAdapter then combines the function of each TransferDropTargetListener, while allowing them to be implemented as if they were the only DragSourceListener.
  • Method Details

    • getTransfer

      Transfer getTransfer()
      Returns the Transfer type that this listener can accept a drop operation for.
      the Transfer for this listener
    • isEnabled

      boolean isEnabled(DropTargetEvent event)
      Returns true if this listener can handle the drop based on the given DropTargetEvent.

      This method is called by the DelegatingDropAdapter only if the DropTargetEvent contains a transfer data type supported by this listener. The Transfer returned by the #getTransfer() method is used for this purpose.

      event - the drop target event
      true if the listener is enabled for the given drop target event.
