I want to create a sticky notes-type widget where a user can drag a div around the screen. I thought kendoDraggable could do that. But when I release the div, it just snaps back to where it was. Can I prevent that functionality where the element stays where I dragged it?

Hello Marlon,

You should also use a kendoDropTarget or kendoDropTargetArea and handle drop event.

Could you please give an example on how it is done?
I tried doing that, but it doesn't happen.
I've tried to set e.preventDefault() in the "dragend" event in the draggable item.
I've added animation effects to the "e.target" in the "drop" event in the dropTarget element.
It doesn't seem to work.
Here's my plunkr:

I get the wanted animation when I have a debug point, but get no animation otherwise.

Hello,

Basically, you should use the drop event to move the element or absolutely position it to the new position. I created a small example that demonstrates both cases.

Thanks. I'm half way where I want.
What I'm interested in is this:
1) Start dragging.
2) On drop, do an effect on the hint (fade and zoom, to be exact :)).
When I try to do it, the hint just disappears.
Here's the plunkr:

How can I make the hint disappear with an effect?

Ok,
As it usually happens after posting in a forum, I have found a solution.
Here's a working solution:
http://plnkr.co/edit/APUkPgnGyxN9tr9gVd9Z?p=preview
The idea was to clone the "hint" element, append it to the body, do the effect with the cloned element, and then remove it from the DOM.
Even though I have found a solution that works, I would like to know if Telerik's staff has a better one (more efficient or API-ish, maybe).

Hello,

The approach seems correct. Currently, built-in animations for the hint on drop are not available.
