I'm a newbie swing developer and am looking for a good example of dnd; dragging a file from the desktop onto a swing panel and displaying the file path and name. I've done a quick google and I cant seem to find what I'm looking for. Funny enough, alot of the examples are either dragging from component to component or even component to desktop. I haven't found anything that shows desktop to component. Can someone please point me in the right direction or show me an example of how I could achieve that.
