Explanation

This example make use of the code from the article How to drag and drop between 2 GtkTreeViews - Part 2 - in both directions?

This table on the left was direct from the article How to display a 2D array in table - Part 5?

What's new here:

  1. Set up drag on the right side (the tree view).
  2. Set up drop on the left side (the table). Note that the main purpose of the drag from right to left is remove selections from the left. As such, for this drop, it's set up on the GtkTable so that the user can drop anywhere on the table.
  3. Note that in this example we attached an additional information "tree" in the dragged data when the user starts dragging from the left. This is to allow us to know if the user dropped the data on the left instead of on the right.
  4. Similarly, we attached an additional information "treeview" in the dragged data when the user starts dragging from the right. This is to allow us to know if the user dropped the data on the right instead of on the left.
  5. Check for any duplication. We basically loop through the existing items in the treeview. If there's no duplication, we will add the new item.
  6. Process drag from the right.
  7. Process drop on the left.
