The React Drag&Drop Utilities go well beyond the default HTML drag and drop functionality, offering a ton of useful event handlers, which you can use with plain HTML elements or even wrap around existing UI components to add drag and drop capabilities to any React app. It further enables you to create custom logic for drag and drop events. This includes the new DragAndDrop, Draggable and Droppable React components as well as the useDraggable and useDroppable hooks. This type of functionality is often used in file managers and customizable tile-based interfaces, such as planning boards. Using these components in combination will enable React developers to have the ultimate flexibility in implementing drag & drop functionality in their apps.
Auto-scroll is among the handy callbacks developers can use out-of-the-box with the KendoReact Drag&Drop Utilities. This feature solves the UX problem of having to drag an element to a part of the page visible only after scrolling as it causes the container to automatically scroll once a user drags an item close to its edge.
Building on top of the default React Drag&Drop functionality, you can easily handle many popular drag and drop scenarios, such as displaying a drag hint, visualizing a preview of the drop event, setting up a minimum distance required for dragging to begin, implementing drag steps and more. You can see demos of the feature applied in many possible use cases in the KendoReact Drag&Drop Utilities documentation.
