public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e)

Description copied from class: MouseAdapter

Invoked when a mouse button is pressed on a component and then dragged. MOUSE_DRAGGED events will continue to be delivered to the component where the drag originated until the mouse button is released (regardless of whether the mouse position is within the bounds of the component).

Due to platform-dependent Drag&Drop implementations, MOUSE_DRAGGED events may not be delivered during a native Drag&Drop operation.

Specified by:
mouseDragged in interface MouseMotionListener
mouseDragged in class MouseAdapter


public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e)

Description copied from class: MouseAdapter

Invoked when the mouse cursor has been moved onto a component but no buttons have been pushed.

Specified by:
mouseMoved in interface MouseMotionListener
mouseMoved in class MouseAdapter
protected void activateLink(int pos,
                            JEditorPane editor)

Calls linkActivated on the associated JEditorPane if the given position represents a link.

This is implemented to forward to the method with the same name, but with the following args both == -1.

pos - the position
editor - the editor pane
