There has been some desire to investigate adding LINK support to Swing DnD. With a recent bug fix, 4655513, imports of type LINK will simply be handled as if they were drops.

Now, new API should be added allowing developers to customize how LINKs are handled.

EVALUATION Adding public LINK constant to TransferHandler, and allowing it to be specified as a source action or drag action.

EVALUATION This is a great idea. ###@###.### 2002-08-05
