Class DragSourceEffect

All Implemented Interfaces:
EventListener, DragSourceListener, SWTEventListener
Direct Known Subclasses:
TableDragSourceEffect, TreeDragSourceEffect

public class DragSourceEffect extends DragSourceAdapter
This class provides default implementations to display a drag source effect during a drag and drop operation. The current implementation does not provide any visual feedback.

The drag source effect has the same API as the DragSourceAdapter so that it can provide custom visual feedback when a DragSourceEvent occurs.

Classes that wish to provide their own drag source effect such as displaying a default source image during a drag can extend the DragSourceEffect class, override the DragSourceAdapter.dragStart method and set the field DragSourceEvent.image with their own image. The image should be disposed when DragSourceAdapter.dragFinished is called.
