The dropzone global attribute is an enumerated attribute indicating what types of content can be dropped on an element, using the HTML Drag and Drop API. It can have the following values:

  • copy, which indicates that dropping will create a copy of the element that was dragged.
  • move, which indicates that the element that was dragged will be moved to this new location.
  • link, which will create a link to the dragged data.
