Cocoa: Targeting the entire tableview in a drop operation

Apple, Cocoa, General

Hi Programmers.

If you are doing drag and drop in an NSTableView with Cocoa, you can use the following method in your “validateDrop” datasource method to retarget the row it is going to:

– (void)setDropRow:(int)row dropOperation:(NSTableViewDropOperation)op;

The documentation is missing something. If you specify a row of -1 and a dropOperation of NSTableViewDropOn, it will target the entire tableview, as opposed to an individual row.
