Draggable onDragEnd not firing

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded an app to gsap 3 and found that my Draggable instance never fires its onDragEnd event. The other events (onDragStart and onDrag) fire just fine. 


I tried onRelease event also and it doesn't fire either. I'm using React 16.12 and found another post about needing to use dragClickables: true option, but that didn't help. 


In case it's relevant, I'm using:



to initiate the dragging, as it's a dynamic element that I create rather than one the user touches. 


Any ideas?

Hey geddski and welcome. Thanks for being a Business Green member - we couldn't do what we do without people like you.


Can you please create a reduced demo to exemplify this issue? Maybe on Stackblitz or CodeSandbox? It's hard to help blindly. I can't recreate the error solely from your description as seen in the pen below:

no problem I'll try to recreate it in a codepen.

I found a workaround in case anyone comes across this thread:


I add my own mouseup/touchend event to the copy element, and call draggable.endDrag(originalEvent). Here's an updated example:

Ah, the problem was that you were listening for a mouse event in a browser that supports pointer events which are prioritized in Draggable (and the browser). I've made an adjustment to the next release that should resolve this. Demo:

A preview of that next release of Draggable can be found at https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/16327/Draggable3.min.js
