Can you drag and drop objects with Eclipse and NetBeans like you can in VIS Studio ? More interested in Eclipse.

Drag and drop what kind of objects? Can you explain in more detail what you mean?

Specifically ... In the Eclipse editor ...

neither in the Java, XML or text eidtors ... simple drag and drop of text does not work ... [maybe I missed something .. but on windows I use CTRL-C : (cut) and CTRL-X: (paste)] this is ok for a line or two but for blocks of text (say moving a method) it stinks ... IMHO

Is there's away to use drag & drop in the Eclipse text/Java editor? If Eclipse doesn't support that feature, is it planned for a future release?

It depends on which editor you are using. With Eclipse 3.5, drag-and-drop works with these editors:

  • Java editor
  • Ant editor
  • Properties file editor


  • It does not work with:

  • XML editor
  • JSP editor


  • The above lists are not exhaustive, they reflect only the editors I checked off-hand.

    Peter,

    Thanks! I'll try again ... the Java editor is my main concern ...
