In the sample above:

  • sid is the ID of each dragged item;
  • tindex is the index of a copy;
  • tobj is a datatable object where the items are dropped to;
  • newId is generated automatically with the webix.uid() method.

The details object can contain the following properties:

details = {};
details.newId = "123"; // a new id for the moved item

Note that in case newId is not defined, the new ID will be the same as the ID of the source item (sid), which is not desirable while copying takes place within one and the same component.
