Repositioning Tools Extension

Description

Hello every one! Today I introduce my third extension, which is repositioning tools extension.
This extension give you the ability to drag your components any where on the screen, without needing to drop it in another arrangement,This will be useful for many users who are making animations and they need the user to drag something by himself , like swiping to delete or making parallax effect,etc..
Actually, i've got the extension idea from @nikzdreamer2001 ( Unfortunately, he is suspended :pensive: ) here.
i've called this extension repositioning tools and not drag tools ,etc.. so i've the ability to update it with others repositoining tools like scaling,zooming,etc..:grinning:

Params Type Description

Register component as draggable so the extension can detect drags on.

vertical Boolean Determines if the component can be dragged vertically

If both the horizontal and vertical parameters set to true, you can drag the component any where in the screen, horizontally and vertically.

Perhaps, This could help me create overlapping Content. I can see in the video that the button can overlap others, I also think that you should give permission to change X/Y Axis using blocks! Your extension could make literally thousands of possibilities!

Thanks @KUMARASWAMY_B.G @Mayank_Kumar @Techno_Vedang @patel for your replies.

My componentTools extension, have an option to set X,Y and Z coordinates :wink::


But i'm adding a special method here , to drag the component programmaticly in the new update.

Yes it can but you probably can see move horizontally and Vertically in my component extensions, they also can overlap components.

Yes you can :grin: May be the next update make it easier.

Of course ! i will make a one now, and update my topic.

Is it possible to create another block that detects when an element has been overlapped?
This would be interesting for developing games.

Version 3.0

Changes:

  • Changed the dragging mechanism
    Now touch events which were being translated into drags, will not be dragged directly, but will require the developer to accept the drag first, this could help in allowing the developers to allow dragging only in case some conditions were met. This behavior can be disabled by enabling the AlwaysAcceptDrags (Thanks @broekmancompany )
  • Registered components are managed by IDs. A new id parameter is added for all blocks
  • The DragComponent block now has a duration parameter
  • Completely rewritten the extension's code.
  • Migrated To Rush CLI for building the extension ( Thanks @Shreyash )
  • Fixes non-smooth dragging when the component's parent is a scrollable component ( i.e: HorizontalScrollArrangement or VerticalScrollArrangement ) ( Thanks @Soham_Shah )

The extension is now open source:


The extension link has been updated in the first post.
