Description
The TextDragDrop OpenTool adds Text Drag and Drop operations to editor panes and File Drop capabilities to the menu bar, tool bar and content manager.

Text drag and drop editing is the easiest way to move or copy a selection of text within a file, between files, or between applications. The text you drop remains selected, which makes it easy to copy a chunk of text into several places.

File drop allows you to open files dragged from the Windows Explorer (or other file manager) and dropped on JBuilder (menu bar, tool bar and content manager).

NEW in 1.1: Double-click-and-drag expands the selection to the word at the mouse position and triple-click-and-drag to the line at the mouse position. The JBuilder default behavior is that the selection is expanded to the mouse position.

This OpenTool works together with the SelectionMargin OpenTool. It allows you to drop text onto the selection margin. The dropped text will be inserted at the beginning of the line.

HISTORY

Version 1.1 (2002-10-02)
- Double-click-and-drag expands the selection to the word at the mouse position.
- Triple-click-and-drag expands the selection to the line at the mouse position.

Version 1.0 (2002-05-26)
- Initial release.


INSTALLATION

1. Quit JBuilder.
2. Copy the TextDragDropOpenTool.jar file into the \lib\ext directory.
3. Linux: Copy the cursor images from the cursors directory to the /jdk1.3/jre/lib/images/cursors directory (backup old files if necessary). The original Drag and Drop cursors are opaque. So you can not see the drop position.
4. Restart JBuilder.


UNINSTALL

1. Quit JBuilder.
2. Delete the TextDragDropOpenTool.jar file from the \lib\ext directory.
3. Restart JBuilder.


COMPATIBILITY

This OpenTool has been tested with JBuilder 4, 5, 6 and 7 under Windows and Linux. It should also work properly on other platforms.

File drop does not work with KDE under Linux. Maybe it works with other window managers.
