This method can be overridden to provide custom drop
behaviors and is a more appropriate override point than the lower level
If this is a self-drop, nodes are simply reordered. An "update" operation will be submitted
to update the
parentId field of the moved node(s).

If this grid is databound, the new nodes will be added to the dataset by calling
DataSource.addData(). Further, if the new nodes were dragged from another
databound component, and
addDropValues is true,
getDropValues will be called for every item being
As a special case, if the
sourceWidget is also databound and a
foreignKey relationship is declared from the
sourceWidget's DataSource to this TreeGrid's DataSource, the interaction will be treated as a "drag
recategorization" use case such as files being placed in folders, employees being assigned to teams, etc. "update"
DSRequests will be submitted that change the foreignKey field in the dropped records to point to the tree folder that
was the target of the drop. In this case no change will be made to the Tree data as such, only to the dropped records.
For multi-record drops, Queuing is automatically used to combine all DSRequests into a single HTTP Request (see QuickStart Guide, Server Framework chapter). This allows the server to persist all changes caused by the drop in a single transaction (and this is automatically done when using the built-in server DataSources with Power Edition and above).
If these default persistence behaviors are undesirable, Call
FolderDropEvent.cancel() from within
onFolderDrop(com.smartgwt.client.widgets.tree.events.FolderDropEvent) to cancel them, then and implement your
own behavior, typically by using grid.updateData() or addData() to add new records.
NOTE: the records you
receive in this event are the actual Records from the source component. Use
DataSource.copyRecords() to create a copy before modifying the records
or using them with updateData() or addData().
