Drag and Drop- Change HTML Elements Position in the Page

Written by @m_k_amin 19 May 2013

Another great feature of HTML5 is Drag and Drop. It allows you to drag everything and drop on everything else; Then its you to decide what must happen next. This code is an example of changing HTML elements position in the page. Click on the one of the elements below (Div and Table), drag it, move it to the specified location, and drop it! This code uses the "Text" data transfer for sending the object ID to the target place. It's simple and beautiful; Enjoy!

Code Snippet:

var objid= ev.dataTransfer.getData("Text")
ev.target.appendChild(document.getElementById(objid))
