Drag drop issue

I'm just starting work on a Java applet (I'm new to Java) and I have an issue with drag/drop from OSX Finder, I am using the following code to process files dropped onto the applet from the Finder:

For some reason, the first time I drop files onto the applet, the 'DataFlavor.javaFileListFlavor' is not available but if I drop the same files a second time it is. What am I doing wrong?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

In the future, please make sure to post code that compiles. It took me several minutes to hunt down all the missing import statements.

I can't reproduce the problem. Dropping one or more files on the applet on OS X works fine for me.
I agree. Here's the link:
