    NO. It was partly correct in post#29

          this.droplabel = "moon";    // this value lost on the next line
          this.droplabel = "mouse";   //  THIS destroys what was saved above
    Also the droplabel arg passed to the constructor is not used.


    I don't know how you can code like this. These are absolute beginner's mistakes.

    The program should pass the String to be accepted to the constructor like was done in post#29.

    now im really confused.
    Yes, I think you are. This program continues to be past what your knowledge is capable of.

    Look at post#29. Copy how it passed a String to the constructor for one instance of the class.
    If you want different drop targets that use different Strings, use the new statement like in post#29 to make new instances of the drop target each with its own String.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    NO. There is no need for an array for a single value. Just save the String in a class level variable.

    Where is string2 defined? You should compile the code before you post it so you can also post any error messages that the compiler writes.

    how i made a different drop target with its own string
    Use the new statement to create different instances:
    DropT dt1 = new DropT("string1");   // one drop target with its own String: string1
    DropT dt2 = new DropT("secondString");  // another drop target with its own String: secondString
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

     public DropTargetTextArea(String string1, String string2) {
    Please explain what string2 is supposed to be used for.

    BTW string1 and string2 are poor names for variables. Variable names should describe the values that the variable holds.
    What is in string1 and in string2?

    That was a big waste of time.

    Why is the arg named: moon? That is a strange name for a variable.

    What are these lines of code for?
                DropTarget dt1 = new DropTarget("moon");
                DropTarget dt2 = new DropTarget("");
    Do they compile without errors?
