public int getIndex()

Returns the index where dropped data should be placed in the list. Interpretation of the value depends on the drop mode set on the associated component. If the drop mode is either DropMode.USE_SELECTION or DropMode.ON, the return value is an index of a row in the list. If the drop mode is DropMode.INSERT, the return value refers to the index where the data should be inserted. If the drop mode is DropMode.ON_OR_INSERT, the value of isInsert() indicates whether the index is an index of a row, or an insert index.

-1 indicates that the drop occurred over empty space, and no index could be calculated.
