Hello All..

Is it possible to write javascript code that say enables drag and drop of links in google search results?

Thing is we need to enable drag and drop support between an SWT based client and a web-based client. So, wanted to know if this is possible.

Please suggest.

Thanks, Pavan.

Links are already draggable and droppable without JavaScript.

Yes, javascript Support for Drag and Drop operations.It may be applied to individual elements on your HTML page. For drag operations, an element can handle the following JavaScript events:
» ondragstart
» ondragover
» ondragleave
» ondrop
