Draggable Proxy and clickable children

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


looking at the docs (https://greensock.com/docs/v3/Plugins/Draggable), setting either


or adding the data attribute on the HTML element you want to be clickable


would make the browsers default behaviour take precedence. However, using the proxy approach, the draggable is only an empty div.

Are there best practises on making children clickable in this case? 


One solution that came to mind was to find the closest element based on it's x/y position and the click x/y , but hopefully there is a smarter way of doing this?

Hey Joris and welcome.


You've got a couple of JS error in the bottom part of your JS. 


I'm curious - why use a proxy at all in this case? Here's how I'd do it.

Thanks for spotting that error, updated the pen.


I will abandon the Proxy approach, it is clearly not  the right approach when dealing with regular DOM elements 🤦‍♂️. It will come in handy  when dealing  canvas/webgl and Draggable.


Thanks for the reply!
