Hi SaiSravya, 

We suggest you to use diagram’s “dragEnter” events to find the node to drag to the diagram space. Also, use dragEnter evtArgs “Cancel” property to cancel the node to adding into the diagram space. Please refer to the below our online UG documentation link and sample.

Hi SaiSravya,  
Please look into the below code example to define dragEnter event. This event triggers when a dragged node from palette with mouse enters a diagram. 
Code example: 
<ejs-diagram #diagram id="diagram" width="100%" height="700px" (dragEnter)='dragEnter($event)'  (created)="diagramCreate()" [nodes]="nodes">  
public dragEnter(args: IDragEnterEventArgs): void {  
 // do your own logic

Hi SaiSravya,  
Sorry for the inconvenience. 
The OpenNew.css file is not needed for our diagram component. So we have removed it from our sample. Please refer to a modified sample below.
