Topic: Drag and drop plugin TouchEvent error

digi-conception priority asked 11 months ago


I have an issue with the drag and drop plugin that I'm using for the first time, in a vue 3 app combined with your ui kit.

I've imported the module and use the exact same code as in the docs to test it.

Expected behavior

Drag and drop working using MDBSortable and MDBSortableItem

Actual behavior

When I try to drag an element, it selects the text instead. In the console I have an error:

[Error] ReferenceError: Can't find variable: TouchEvent
z (mdb-vue-drag-and-drop.js:341)
ae (mdb-vue-drag-and-drop.js:309)
x (mdb-vue-drag-and-drop.js:335)

Draggable elements not draggable

Hi! Unfortunatelly i cannot reproduce this problem. Please check the points below:

  • 1) plugins are part of mdb vue pro advanced package. Make sure that you installed this one in your app (plugins should be installed aswell)
  • 2) in script there should be import for MDBSortable and MDBSortableItem: import { MDBSortable, MDBSortableItem } from "mdb-vue-drag-and-drop";
  • 3) in main.ts should be added css files for both, mdb-vue-ui-kit and drag-and-drop: import "mdb-vue-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css";<br>import "mdb-vue-drag-and-drop/css/mdb-vue-drag-and-drop.min.css";
  • 4) check pro plugins installation page:

If noone of that will help, send us some code that you are using, so we could take a look and see what may be the problem. Best Regards!
