Disable dropping feature in JSpinner

Hi All,

I need to avoid dropping of text inside the JSpinner control. Below is my code for custom transferHandler.
Even though canImport method is returning false I am able to drag and drop text into JSpinner.
I searched net but did not find proper solution. Please let me know if any one is having an idea how to do it.



Thanks
Peter

have you tried setting the spinner's
formattedTextfield's allowInvalidCharacters
to false?
(posting from phone, so method name
might not be exact)

correct, but the method belongs to the
formattedTextfield of the spinner.

read the spinner docs to get the formattedTextfield

[edit]
thanks to the previous post being edited, my post now makes no sense.
I replied to the unedited post which said 'couldn't find the method in the JSpinner class'
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
