DataTransfer.addElement()

Non-standard

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The DataTransfer.addElement() method sets the drag source to the given element. This element will be the element to which drag and dragend events are fired, and not the default target (the node that was dragged).

Note: This method is Gecko-specific.

Syntax

void dataTransfer.addElement(el);

Arguments

el
The Element to set as the drag source.

Return value

void
 

Example

This example shows the use of the addElement() method

function change_drag_node(event, node)
{
  var dt = event.dataTransfer;
  dt.addElement(node);
}

Specifications

This method is not defined in any Web standard.
