Drag Effect In Action


Last week I posted my solution to the IB3-like drag-from-library-palette effect called “JLNDragEffectManager“. Today I released an update to XTabulator (2.002) that contains this effect when dragging rows to the desktop or a folder to create new files. It’s a perfect demonstration of how “drag effects” can be used for excellent user feedback in your UI. Take a look.

Pretty, isn’t it? I think it makes all the difference in showing the user exactly what will happen if they drop the dragged rows onto the Desktop or a Finder folder. It was ridiculously easy to drop this into my app, as was my goal. Are you using JLNDragEffectManager in your app? Send me some shots and I’ll post them!
