Drag & Drop with reverteffect Option


This option is used to define the effect to use when the draggable reverts back to its starting position.

Defaults to a smooth slide to the element's original position. The reverteffect option specifies the function to be called just prior to the endeffect function when the revert option is set to true.


new Draggable('element', {reverteffect: 'effectFunction'});

Here effectFunction is the function, which defines the effect to be applied.

         window.onload = function() {
            var img = 'myimage';
            new Draggable('myimage' , {
            revert: true,
            reverteffect: function(){
               new Effect.MoveBy('myimage', 100,100);
