public static interface View.OnDragListener


Interface definition for a callback to be invoked when a drag is being dispatched to this view. The callback will be invoked before the hosting view's own onDrag(event) method. If the listener wants to fall back to the hosting view's onDrag(event) behavior, it should return 'false' from this callback.

                DragEvent event)

v View: The View that received the drag event.

event DragEvent: The DragEvent object for the drag event.

boolean true if the drag event was handled successfully, or false if the drag event was not handled. Note that false will trigger the View to call its onDragEvent() handler.
