Description Petr Dvorak 2008-09-01 14:59:34 UTC
It would be nice if - for example - a panel where a button is about to be dropped was somehow highlighted. For example:
if you moved a cursor with a button's preview above the panel, you would see the border around the panel or the panel's
color would change slightly (gray overlay).

Can we do this after 6.5? 

The problem with current solution is that when there are several panels and a component is being drag'n'dropped, it can
be kind of tricky to place it into the correct panel.

In fact, we do that already. Try to put few JPanels into a JFrame and move JButton over them. You should see border of 
the panels highlighted.

You are right, I was just about to write a comment here - it does not work on GTK only... It works in Metal on Windows

Changing to P4 defect, adding GTK keyword...
