Custom Drop Zone

The FileUploader component supports the drag-and-drop functionality to upload files.

In this demo, the dropZone property specifies the HTML element in which you can drag and drop files for upload. The dropZoneEnter and dropZoneLeave events allow you to customize the drop zone when the mouse pointer enters and leaves this zone while dragging the file.
