(I resigned to posting this here because it seems to make more sense, considering the Mac forums seem to be both dry, and more for a general sort of questioning)
I've been working on a win box with an app while my employer runs macs with the latest mac jre.
The problem's coming from implementing drag and drop. While the app runs well on my windows boxes, the dnd has a crap load of problems on his macs.
Specifically what I noticed was the following:
And sometimes, he'd get DnDInProgress exceptions when trying to initiate drags, insinuating that something is going on regarding the termination of the DNDs. Apparently, if he drags and drops at a fast rate, he's more likely to come up with these problems.
The thing is, the dnds are themselves fairly processor intensive, requiring the rescaling/ripping of images. I'm not sure if that's the cause of the issue, although my slower computer (p300 with 128 mb of ram) runs without exceptions.
And all attempts at trying to dig up information regarding this problem have come up naught. Which means that there's something we're all missing, or no one's really done any drag and dropping on the mac.
So, has anyone heard anything about any dnd issues on the mac? Or a fix? Or any ideas at all? Thanks =)
