Class DropTarget

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.dnd.DropTarget
All Implemented Interfaces:
DropTargetListener, Serializable, EventListener

public class DropTarget
extends Object
implements DropTargetListener, Serializable

The DropTarget is associated with a Component when that Component wishes to accept drops during Drag and Drop operations.

Each DropTarget is associated with a FlavorMap. The default FlavorMap hereafter designates the FlavorMap returned by SystemFlavorMap.getDefaultFlavorMap().

createDropTargetContext

protected DropTargetContext createDropTargetContext()
Creates the DropTargetContext associated with this DropTarget. Subclasses may override this method to instantiate their own DropTargetContext subclass.
