Hello friends,
 
I have deleted the previous question having the same problem , but the code seemed to be very long so I am presenting a smaller version of the code here
the following program produces a frame containing three panels in a row.The left and the right panel contains a slot while the middle panel is left empty.
when the mouse is dragged in a slot , the slot display message "Dragged"; for clicking it displays "Clicked me" and for releasing , it displays "Released me".
the problem lies here :
When the mouse-drag originates from the middle panel(REMEMBER THAT THE MIDDLE PANNEL IS EMPTY) and continued in the left/right panels (WHICH CONTAINS THE SLOTS), the slots doesn't give the appropriate messages , BUT if the mouse-drag is originated from any of the slots and continued in the remaining slots, the slots gives the appropriate messages.  WHY ?????????
Please Help !!!

class Slot1 extends Canvas implements MouseMotionListener{
     
     class SlotMouseAdapter extends MouseAdapter {
        public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent evt)

        public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent evt)

    {

        // Add the listeners to the Slot
        addMouseListener(new SlotMouseAdapter());

        //panelMiddle.add(new Slot1()); //MIDDLE PANEL LEFT EMPTY
        add(panelRight);
        panelRight.setLayout(new GridLayout(1,1));
        panelRight.add(new Slot1());
       

        // add the listener
        addWindowListener(new MyFrameWindowListener());

    }

There's no mouse listener added to the middle panel, so there will be no notification of mouse events on it.
