What Is Drag And Drop?
Drag And Drop is one of the most commonly used features in today's web page or applications that allow the user to change the position of an object (element) by using mouse drag or touch events.
How does Drag and Drop work?
HTML5 (the latest version of Hypertext Markup Language) provides a basic HTML Drag and Drop API on your web app. The user may select draggable elements with a mouse, drag those elements to a droppable element, and drop them by releasing the mouse button. A translucent representation of the draggable elements follows the pointer during the drag operation.
