Drag and Drop

  • Mark J. Collins

Abstract

The ability to select an element and drag it to another location is an excellent example of a natural user experience. I can still remember the early Apple computers where you could delete a file by dragging it onto a trash can icon. This action, and hundreds more like it, are a key component of user experiences found on desktop applications. Web applications, however, have lagged far behind in this arena. With the drag and drop (DnD) API in HTML5, you’ll find web applications rapidly catching up.
