For the most part I've figured out DND with trees and other thing within a GUI but now I'd like to DND out of the application and say. Say I have a JTree representing directories on the file system. I'd like to be able to drag from my GUI onto the desktop and have windows copy the file to the desktop. Any ideas? Everytime I try it I get the "no drop" icon when I hover over the desktop.
