Drag n drop value

Normally if you drag an image to an input it will put the image src in the input.
Is there a way to intercept this and place the image id in the textbox instead?
Or if not an image then some other way to do a drag n drop of a value/id etc

Preferably without jQuery UI

Hey Gary,

I think you'll find this behaviours is specific to the OS and not the browser - certainly not HTML, so I think you'll struggle to hook into it.

Any specific reason you don't want to use jQueryUI - it's a breeze with that.

using straight javascript, you could try using the onkeyup to detect the drag of some text. from there, it's just a matter of parsing out the string you want

I have found an example using the UI, I did say no UI but thinking about it, it is only for my backend so I can live with it.
This is what I found in the meantime and seems to work fine

You're not just limited to getting the ID - along with data attributes you can store whatever data you like and transfer that into your droppable :)
