Directive with :nochilddrag argument

On below examples, you can scroll on when holding mouse outside of child element
(Outside of the text or red box)

Select which elements can be dragged


  <div v-dragscroll> 
    <div class="child">...<div><!-- can be dragged -->
    <div class="child" data-no-dragscroll>...<div><!-- can't be dragged -->
  <div>

  <div v-dragscroll:nochilddrag> 
    <div class="child" data-dragscroll>...<div><!-- can be dragged -->
    <div class="child">...<div><!-- can't be dragged -->
  <div>

When using the directive all elements inside will be draggable. You can use data-no-dragscroll to tell which elements can't be dragged.

In the same way, if you are using nochilddrag you can use data-dragscroll to tell which element can be dragged.


firstchilddrag (DEPRECATED, prefer data attributes)


  <div v-dragscroll:firstchilddrag> 
    <div class="subContainer">...<div> 
  <div>

When using nochilddrag, all elements inside the parent element will not be draggable, but in some case you may need to have only one subchild and multile grandchild and only the grandchild should not be dragable.


Pass scroll when max reached


  <div v-dragscroll.pass> 
    <div class="subContainer">...<div> 
  <div>

It would be helpful if scroll were passed to the window object, when max scroll position were reached.

Apply dragscroll to a child dom element


  <!-- Vue -->
  <mycomponent v-dragscroll="{ target: '.my-draggable-div' }">
  </mycomponent>
  
  <!-- HTML generated -->
  <div class="mycomponent">
    <div class="my-draggable-div"></div>
  </div>

Use case: when you want to apply the directive to a child dom element you have no control over (because generated by vuejs).

You can use v-dragscroll="{ target: 'element' }" to tell to which child the directive will be applied. This element string must be a valid CSS selector string (used by querySelector). Examples: '#element_id', '.element_class', 'section'.

To control if drag should be enabled/disabled you can add the active parameter to the directive.


  <!-- Vue -->
  <mycomponent v-dragscroll="{ target: '.my-draggable-div', active: true }">
  </mycomponent>


Ignore specific mouse buttons

You can use the following modifiers:

  • noleft
  • nomiddle
  • noright
  • noback
  • noforward

  <div v-dragscroll.noleft="true"> 
    <div class="subContainer">...<div> 
  <div>

This will not scroll using left click. (try with right click)

EVENTS

The directive provides 3 events.

  • dragscrollstart
  • dragscrollmove
  • dragscrollend

The dragscrollmove event includes a data object with the following format:

  {
    detail: {
      deltaX: 0, // if using the x modifier, or no axis modifier
      deltaY: 0, // if using the y modifier, or no axis modifier
    },
  }

example:

  <div v-dragscroll  v-on:dragscrollstart="doSomething" v-on:dragscrollmove="doSomething(params, $event.detail.deltaX)" v-on:dragscrollend="doSomething">
    ...
  </div>
