    Default implementation of mouse drag event?

      Is there any Default implementation of mouse drag event?

      Say if the developer does not override and implement mouse drag event, still when the frame is dragged, the frame gets repainted itself in the new position. It indicates some default implementation of mouse drag event, but am unable to find out where it has been implemented.

      Why bother when everything works fine? I have a requirement to move my non-modal dialog when the frame is being dragged to another location. I tried adding mousemotionlistener to the frame, to the panel inside a frame, but the event does not reach my custom implementation of mousedrag event.

      Any clues?

          Moving the frame is a different listener: ComponentListener; add one to the frame. The frame's window decorations are OS territory, so I'm not sure if there's system dependence. I seem to vaguely remember some systems sending an event only after done moving, while others send the event as the frame moves.
