Basic Usage

import VueFullScreenFileDrop from 'vue-full-screen-file-drop';
import 'vue-full-screen-file-drop/dist/vue-full-screen-file-drop.css';

Then in your template:
<VueFullScreenFileDrop @drop='onDrop'>

The @drop event has is passed two args.
  • formData - a FormData object that can be used directly to post to server as multipart form. The default field for form is upload by default. This can be changed via a prop.
  • files - a FileList object that is part of the DataTransfer api. Note this is array-like, so may not respond to to typical array methods directly.

// Example event handler
onDrop(formData, files) {
  console.log(formData); // Can be posted to server
  console.log(files);    // Can get access to things like file name and size
