Class DragSourceContext

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--java.awt.dnd.DragSourceContext
All Implemented Interfaces:
DragSourceListener, EventListener

public class DragSourceContext
extends Object
implements DragSourceListener

The DragSourceContext class is responsible for managing the initiator side of the Drag and Drop protocol. In particular it is responsible for managing event notifications to the DragSourceListener, and providing the Transferable state to enable the data transfer.

An instance of this class is created as a result of a DragSource's startDrag() method being successfully invoked. This instance is responsible for tracking the state of the operation on behalf of the DragSource and dispatching state changes to the DragSourceListener.

Note that the DragSourceContext itself implements the DragSourceListener interface. This is to allow the platform peer (the DragSourceContextPeer instance) created by the DragSource to notify the DragSourceContext of changes in state in the ongiong operation. This allows the DragSourceContext to interpose itself between the platform and the DragSourceListener provided by the initiator of the operation.

                         DragSourceListener dsl)
Called from DragSource, this constructor creates a new DragSourceContext given the DragSourceContextPeer for this Drag, the DragGestureEvent that triggered the Drag, the initial Cursor to use for the Drag, an (optional) Image to display while the Drag is taking place, the offset of the Image origin from the hotspot at the instant of the triggering event, the Transferable subject data, and the DragSourceListener to use during the Drag and Drop operation.
Parameters:
dscp - the DragSourceContextPeer for this drag
trigger - the triggering event
