GSAP Draggable user-select: text

Go to solution Solved by akapowl,

Hi there!

With Swiper JS you can wrap your text with a span element with class swiper-no-swiping to disable swiping on the text and allow selecting it.
Is this somehow possible with GSAP Draggable?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a little confused - are you saying you created a Draggable on certain elements that you don't want to be draggable? 

 

Please make sure you include a minimal demo if you'd like some help. It really helps to see the issue in context.

Yes. I know it seems a bit odd. It was more of a general question. For example if I have a fullscreen draggable section and there is something like a phone number, which you want to select. I've tried simply adding user-select: text and cursor: text to the element but obviously this didn't work and I guess you need JS here. By default there is no such option using Draggable, correct?

Here is a Swiper JS example:

Setting dragClickables: false in your Draggable alongside data-clickable="true" on your element would make that possible,@Its_Lefty

 

https://greensock.com/docs/v3/Plugins/Draggable

 

dragClickables Boolean - By default, Draggable will work on pretty much any element, but sometimes you might want clicks on <a>, <input>, <select>, <button>, and <textarea> elements (as well as any element that has a data-clickable="true" attribute) NOT to trigger dragging so that the browser’s default behavior fires (like clicking on an input would give it focus and drop the cursor there to begin typing), so if you want Draggable to ignore those clicks and allow the default behavior instead, set dragClickables: false.
