OpenLayers.Handler.Drag

The drag handler is used to deal with sequences of browser events related to dragging.  The handler is used by controls that want to know when a drag sequence begins, when a drag is happening, and when it has finished.

Controls that use the drag handler typically construct it with callbacks for ‘down’, ‘move’, and ‘done’.  Callbacks for these keys are called when the drag begins, with each move, and when the drag is done.  In addition, controls can have callbacks keyed to ‘up’ and ‘out’ if they care to differentiate between the types of events that correspond with the end of a drag sequence.  If no drag actually occurs (no mouse move) the ‘down’ and ‘up’ callbacks will be called, but not the ‘done’ callback.

Create a new drag handler with the OpenLayers.Handler.Drag constructor.

Summary
OpenLayers.Handler.DragThe drag handler is used to deal with sequences of browser events related to dragging.
Properties
started{Boolean} When a mousedown or touchstart event is received, we want to record it, but not set ‘dragging’ until the mouse moves after starting.
stopDown{Boolean} Stop propagation of mousedown events from getting to listeners on the same element.
dragging{Boolean}
last{OpenLayers.Pixel} The last pixel location of the drag.
start{OpenLayers.Pixel} The first pixel location of the drag.
lastMoveEvt{Object} The last mousemove event that occurred.
oldOnselectstart{Function}
interval{Integer} In order to increase performance, an interval (in milliseconds) can be set to reduce the number of drag events called.
timeoutId{String} The id of the timeout used for the mousedown interval.
documentDrag{Boolean} If set to true, the handler will also handle mouse moves when the cursor has moved out of the map viewport.
documentEvents{Boolean} Are we currently observing document events?

Properties

started

{Boolean} When a mousedown or touchstart event is received, we want to record it, but not set ‘dragging’ until the mouse moves after starting.

stopDown

{Boolean} Stop propagation of mousedown events from getting to listeners on the same element.  Default is true.

dragging

{Boolean}

last

{OpenLayers.Pixel} The last pixel location of the drag.

start

{OpenLayers.Pixel} The first pixel location of the drag.

lastMoveEvt

{Object} The last mousemove event that occurred.  Used to position the map correctly when our “delay drag” timeout expired.

oldOnselectstart

{Function}

interval

{Integer} In order to increase performance, an interval (in milliseconds) can be set to reduce the number of drag events called.  If set, a new drag event will not be set until the interval has passed.  Defaults to 0, meaning no interval.

timeoutId

{String} The id of the timeout used for the mousedown interval.  This is “private”, and should be left alone.

documentDrag

{Boolean} If set to true, the handler will also handle mouse moves when the cursor has moved out of the map viewport.  Default is false.

documentEvents

{Boolean} Are we currently observing document events?

Constructor

OpenLayers.Handler.Drag

Returns OpenLayers.Handler.Drag

Parameters

control{OpenLayers.Control} The control that is making use of this handler.  If a handler is being used without a control, the handlers setMap method must be overridden to deal properly with the map.
callbacks{Object} An object containing a single function to be called when the drag operation is finished.  The callback should expect to receive a single argument, the pixel location of the event.  Callbacks for ‘move’ and ‘done’ are supported.  You can also speficy callbacks for ‘down’, ‘up’, and ‘out’ to respond to those events.
options{Object}

Functions

dragstart

dragstart: function (evt)

This private method is factorized from mousedown and touchstart methods

Parameters

evt{Event} The event

Returns

{Boolean} Let the event propagate.

dragmove

dragmove: function (evt)

This private method is factorized from mousemove and touchmove methods

Parameters

evt{Event} The event

Returns

{Boolean} Let the event propagate.

dragend

dragend: function (evt)

This private method is factorized from mouseup and touchend methods

Parameters

evt{Event} The event

Returns

{Boolean} Let the event propagate.

down

down: function(evt)

This method is called during the handling of the mouse down event.  Subclasses can do their own processing here.

Parameters

evt{Event} The mouse down event

move

move: function(evt)

This method is called during the handling of the mouse move event.  Subclasses can do their own processing here.

Parameters

evt{Event} The mouse move event

up

up: function(evt)

This method is called during the handling of the mouse up event.  Subclasses can do their own processing here.

Parameters

evt{Event} The mouse up event

out

out: function(evt)

This method is called during the handling of the mouse out event.  Subclasses can do their own processing here.

Parameters

evt{Event} The mouse out event
