What happens to a dropped morph if the receiving morph doesn't want it?
Last updated at 6:46 pm UTC on 22 February 2017
The default behaviour is for it to do nothing, that is, to sit on top of the receiving morph, but without interacting with it. A more intuitive behavior is for the dropped morph to go back to its original position. This can be achieved by the receiver answering true to the message repelsMorph:event: when it doesn't want the dropped morph:
ReceiverMorph >> repelsMorph: aMorph event: anEvent
^ (self wantsDroppedMorph: aMorph event: anEvent) not
If the dropped morph should not go back to its original position but stay attached to the hand (cursor) an additional method has to be implemented:
DroppedMorph >> rejectDropMorphEvent: anEvent
| h |
h := anEvent hand.
WorldState addDeferredUIMessage: [ h grabMorph: self ].
anEvent wasHandled: true
