Description racx 2007-10-12 20:14:19 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200710120000 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.0_02 ]

I don't know if this is how it supposed to behave.

-Create a gridpanel;

-Drop few components in it;

-Try to move a component of the panel while draging and droping it,
you can select it but it is impossible to drag it as it moves the
WHOLE panel...

The current impl works that way, if the panel is in grid layout mode, it can move the component out of it.

Anyway, it seems it doesn't look correct, and also the move back into the panel is not easy.

Currently the outline is needed for the necessary workarounds.

Making this RFE to deal with this in the future.

It seems that the move should always move the component out, unless there is some special key pressed adding meaning to
move with parent component or something like that.
