Standards information


Used in Roles
No role required.


When the aria-grabbed attribute is set to true it has been selected for dragging, false indicates that the element can be grabbed for a drag-and-drop operation, but is not currently grabbed, and undefined (or no value) indicates the element cannot be grabbed (default).

When aria-grabbed is set to true, you should also update the aria-dropeffect attribute of all potential drop targets. When an element is not selected for drag (the value is set to false, undefined, or the attribute is removed), revert the aria-dropeffect attributes of the associated drop targets to none.
