HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
The crucial event in the drag-and-drop process is dragOver . Any ele-
ment that is to be a target for dropped elements must capture the
dragOver event and cancel the default action on it:
function dragOver(event) {
log('dragOver ' +;
When the element is dropped, the drop event is fired. It's in this event
that the actual work needs to be done. This example removes the list
item from the source list and adds it to the selected list using the stan-
dard appendChild method:
function drop(event) {
var id = event.dataTransfer.getData('Text');;
log('drop ' +;
These two events can be bound declara-
tively to the drop target element:
<ul id="drophere"
As you can see, the dragOver event is
fired repeatedly while the dragged ele-
ment is over the drop target.
If you only want drag-and-drop to work in Firefox, Chrome, and
Safari, that's all the code you need—you're done! If you want it to
work in IE too, read ahead to the next section.
