Disable drag and drop for any text
Hi people, I'm here with another problem I've just realised ...
I programmed my textfield in order to accept only numbers. It does work great, but if I drag some text from any part and drop it into the textfield,
it accepts it...I was searching on the net and found some helpful information, but just about restricting a textfield to drag something of itself.
I just want to disable dropping any text into the textfield. Hope you understand and could help me...
Thanks in advance...
Re: Disable drag and drop for any text
You may be trying to fix the wrong thing. My question is how did you prevent the textfield from accepting non-numeric input? Did you use a KeyListener? If so and if this is a Swing application, then that's not the way to solve it. Better is to use either a JFormattedTextField or a DocumentFilter.
