Drop Event Not Preventing Default

Tags: , , , ,



I’ve the following: http://jsfiddle.net/KywJT/

function dragEnter(evt) {
    evt.stopPropagation();
    evt.preventDefault();
    $(evt.target).addClass('over');
}

function dragLeave(evt) {
    evt.stopPropagation();
    evt.preventDefault();
    $(evt.target).removeClass('over');
}

function drop(evt) {
   evt.stopPropagation();
   evt.preventDefault();
   $(evt.target).removeClass('over');
}

jQuery( function ( $ ) {

  var $box = $( "#box" );
  $box.bind("dragenter", dragEnter);
  $box.bind("dragleave", dragLeave);
  $box.bind("drop", drop);
});

I’m using Chrome version 24.0.1312.52 m and last jQuery (1.8.3). When I drop a file into the box, browser is not preventing default beaviour. Can you please help me?

P.S. dragexit is deprecated correct?

Answer

This should fix the issue for you.

jQuery( function ( $ ) {
    var $box = $( "#box" );
    $box.bind("dragenter", dragEnter);
    $box.bind("dragleave", dragLeave);
    $box.bind("drop", drop);

    $(document).bind('dragover', function (e) {
         e.preventDefault();
    });
});
