In this article, we will explain how to use listening scripts to track different Dropzone customer events.

The 3 Dropzone custom events

The dropzone source has 3 custom events that can be tracked:

  • dz-drop : Triggered when a candidate drops a resume in the dropzone

  • dz-success : Triggered when a file is submitted to the API

  • dz-error : Triggered when something goes wrong

These events are attached and dispatched to the document object of the webpage.

Listening scripts for the custom events

You can listen to these three events by adding an event listener that takes as an argument the custom event name. To do that, you can use the scripts below.

Script 1: Listening to file drop event:

document.addEventListener('dz-drop', function (e) { 
// code to execute after a file is added to the dropzone
}, false);

Script 2: Listening to file sent success event:

document.addEventListener('dz-success', function (e) {    
// code to execute after the file is submitted to api
}, false);

Script 3: Listening to the error event:

document.addEventListener('dz-error', function (e) {     
// code to execute when an execption occured
}, false);
