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.
An event handler for drag and drop events sent to the window.
window.ondragdrop = funcRef;window.addEventListener("dragdrop", funcRef, useCapturing);
- the event handler function to be registered.
Fire an alert on dragdrop
In this example, an event listener is added to the window (the event target). If, from an external source, a tab, a link, marked text or a file is dragged and dropped onto this window, the alert is fired. Note how
event.stopPropagation(); prevents the browser from loading the dropped tab, link or file.
Not part of specification.
