I'd like to replace jQuery's draggable by GreenSock Draggable (possibly with throwprops), but it seems it doesn't have a on-drag-event. Is that right?

BTW, I would like it very much if the documentation of the utilities mentions dependencies.

Hi potatoDie  :)


you should to use this : onDrag:function(){}


pls check this out :


See the Pen ogYXmW by MAW (@MAW) on CodePen


and pls read the Draggable Doc. , you'll find all of GSAP Draggable events ( onPress , onDragStart , onDrag , onDragEnd , ... ect )  :




and if you want to use throwProps:true on the Draggable . ThrowPropsPlugin will only work if you are using the version you get when you purchase a  Club GreenSock Membership (Shockingly or Business Green).

Hi PotatoDie,


Nice work converting your Kaleidoscope pen to use Draggable


The dependencies for Draggable were listed in the "notes, dependencies and limitations" section of the Draggable docs, but I just added them as Requirements at the very top of the page so it will be much easier to find. Thanks for pointing that out. If you come across anything in the docs or any resources that you think could be clearer, please don't hesitate to let us know.


FYI I'm the one that add the animation the other day: http://codepen.io/GreenSock/full/pvEMPW/

Really impressed with how you made it. Now I it looks like I should be using Draggable too ;)

Thank you!

Unfortunately I still cannot find the events in the docs, sorry. (But it's clear now.)

Would it be alright to use throwProps on Codepen for non-members?


Yes, Carl, I'm much honoured by your fork of the Manhattan kaleidoscope! Would make sense to use GSAP draggable I think, especially since it handles touch events too!

Yup, you can use ThrowProps on CodePen, perfectly fine. 

In fact, Diaco's pen already has it hooked up, so feel free to fork it.

It uses a special version of ThrowProps that will only work on CodePen.


As for finding the onStart, onDrag, onDragEnd and other callbacks of Draggable, please be sure you click the "show more" button and scroll way down :)

They are part of the config object description.

You are right, it's all there. I just missed it (expecting the events after the lists of properties and methods I suppose).

Thanks a lot!
