Hello. I've been using NetBeans for quite a while, and I really like the Draggable components that it uses. In both the GUI Builder & the GUI itself. So, my question is, How do you drag components around in the UI like that? I've looked into the java.awt.dnd package, and the tutorials don't really cover component dragging, just text dragging. If anyone has any tips or links to good tutorials, those would be awesome =).
