Documentation Contents
Drag and Drop enables data transfer both across Java and native applications, between Java applications, and within a single Java application.
Drag and Drop Enhancements for JavaTM 2 SDK, Standard Edition, v 1.3
Enhancements to Drag and Drop in this release consist of 2 new methods in class java.awt.datatransfer.DataFlavor. Without the use of the new methods, unicode-encoded text will not be dragged onto some native-application documents correctly (an extra character will be left at the beginning of the text. The new methods will deliver ISO8859-1 text instead of unicode text to avoid this problem.
