Drag and Drop

  • Prabhu Sunderaraman


Drag and Drop (DnD) is a prominent feature in modern web applications. Various UI controls in a web page can be dragged, moved around, and dropped in different spots effortlessly, thus saving a number of mouse click operations. A number of JavaScript libraries provide their own APIs for implementing the drag and drop behavior. DnD is now a part of the standard HTML 5 specification as well.
