Drag and drop for Raphael elements.

Original Author: Gabe Hollombe. Rewritten several times over by Clifford Heath.

Just call some_raphael_object.draggable() and you're done.
Or pass options and/or add methods to customise the behaviour.
You need to include jquery and Raphael first.

When you call draggable() on any Raphael object, it becomes a handle that can start a drag.
A mousedown on the handle followed by enough motion causes a drag to start.

The dragged object may be the handle itself, another object defined in the options to
draggable(), or an object returned from the handle's dragStart method (if defined).

The drag proceeds by calling drag_obj.dragUpdate for each mouse motion, see below.
If no dragUpdate is defined, a Raphael translate() is used to provide simple motion.

If the Escape key is pressed during the drag, the motion is reverted and the drag stops.
In this case, dragCancel will be called, see below.

When a drag finished normally, dragFinish is called as defined below.

Options:

  drag_obj
	A click on the handle will start a drag on this object.
	Otherwise handle will be dragged, unless handle.dragStart()
	returns a different draggable object.

  right_button
	unset means drag using either button, otherwise false/true means left/right only.

  reluctance
	Number of pixels of motion before a drag starts (default 3).

Optional method on handle. The events are passed so you can see the modifier keys.

  dragStart(x, y, mousedownevent, mousemoveevent)
	called (after reluctance) with the mousedown event and canvas location.
	Must return the object to drag. Good place to call toFront so the drag_obj doesn't hide.

Optional methods on drag_obj. The event is passed so you can see the modifier keys.

  dragUpdate(dragging_over, dx, dy, event)
	dragging_over:	the object under the cursor (after hiding drag_obj)
	dx,dy:		the number of units of motion
	event:		the mousemotion event

  dragFinish(dropped_on, x, y, event)
	dropped_on:	the object under the cursor (after hiding drag_obj)
	x,y:		the page location
	event:		the mouseup event

  dragCancel()
	called if the drag is cancelled

The escape key can be used to cancel a drag and revert the motion.

Simple example:

      paper = Raphael($("notepad"), 200, 200);
      rect = paper.rect(5, 10, 60, 20, 10).attr({stroke: "#009", "stroke-width": 3});
      rect.draggable();

If the object supports an dragUpdate method, that will be called with the
x and y deltas and the event for each mouse move while dragging.

Example (resize the rectangle instead of dragging it):

      paper = Raphael($("notepad"), 200, 200);
      rect = paper.rect(5, 10, 60, 20, 10).attr({stroke: "#009", "stroke-width": 3});
      rect.draggable({reluctance: 10});

      rect.dragUpdate = function(dragging_over, dx, dy, event) {
        rect.attr({
          width: rect.attrs.width + dx,
          height: rect.attrs.height + dy
        });
      };
