Tutorial: Drag and drop elements with Google Web Designer

A quick tutorial about how to create Drag’n’Drop on the stage with just 8 lines of code. Google Web Designer doesn’t provide native Drag’n’Drop for elements on the stage, so we have to create it on our own.

For touch events, just attach the touchstart event to the same dragStart function and a touchMove event for the page. The following script will catch both, touch and mouse events:


gwd.dragStart = function(event) {
gwd.dragger = this;
event = (event.touches ? event.touches[0] : event);
gwd.s = window.getComputedStyle ? getComputedStyle(this, null) : this.currentStyle;
gwd.dX = event.pageX – parseInt(gwd.s[“left”]);
gwd.dY = event.pageY – parseInt(gwd.s[“top”]);

gwd.dragMove = function(event) {
if (gwd.dragger) {
event = (event.touches ? event.touches[0] : event);
gwd.actions.events.setInlineStyle(gwd.dragger.id, “left:” + (event.pageX – gwd.dX) + “px; top:” + (event.pageY – gwd.dY) + “px”);

gwd.dragStop = function(event) {
gwd.dragger = null;
