I am brand new to developing for the Mac. I am however, a seasoned
Java developer. My friend has an open-source tool in Java called
FlexDock and he is trying it out on Mac OSX. Essentially it makes
developing dragable and dockable window componets easy for custom
Java Swing applications.
He has hit a snag. When draging a dockable window around the
application the window is displayed as a "ghost image" of itself.
However, if the window is drug outside of the application window the
drag image is lost. He has successfully hooked into APIs on other
OSs to create a drag icon when the window is drug over the desktop
outside of the custom application.
Would anyone have some advice or sample code for doing this with
Carbon for OSX? Thanks for your advice and help.
The Carbon Drag Manager APIs can be found in Drag.h and the following
URL points to some supporting documentation.
