Hi All,

Can n e 1 solve my problem,
I m making a tool which should have feature of drag n drop of icons.
It is like in VB, if u want to place text box u can simply llick on
text component and it will place over the form.
Same I want when I want click over icon and drag it this should place
over my form.

Here's one way to do it. You can drag images off the top panel and down to the lower panel. Once (the mouse button is) released the image is set into a JLabel and you can then click on it and drag it around in the lower panel.
