Sortable trees are not working well in the current version

Reported by Cyrus | February 10th, 2009 @ 02:32 PM

I have found other examples of the sortable tree that work pretty good. I was wondering myself why the drag&drop was not working that good in my case.

I finally found out that these other examples are using an older version of scriptaculous.

Please test out yourself:

Old version of scriptaculous - working good: http://www.woltlab.org/sortable1

New version of scriptaculous - working not so good http://www.woltlab.org/sortable2

    Hello, excuse for my poor english, i'm French. I found a correction for dragdrop.js who fixe the bug. In line 689 we find :

    var options_for_tree = {
      onHover:      Sortable.onEmptyHover,
      overlap:      options.overlap,
      containment:  options.containment,
      hoverclass:   options.hoverclass

    Remplace by :

    var options_for_tree = {
      onHover:      Sortable.onEmptyHover,
      overlap:      options.overlap,
      containment:  options.containment,
      hoverclass:   options.hoverclass,
      tree:         options.tree

    I joined the file fixed.

    Hi there,

    I'm having the same problem of the drag and drop sortable list not being 'fluid' or 'smooth' with the latest version of scriptaculous and firefox. I tried using Cyrus' older version of scriptaculous from his example above and it worked perfectly.

    I'm not using any nesting / trees, just a simple

    • sortable list.

      I've tested in Firefox 3 and IE 7 and it's actually working as expected in IE, but not Firefox.

      Using scriptaculous.js v1.8.1

      I'm wondering if there's a similar fix for non-nested lists to the one posted by Kalou or if anyone else has had the same problem?

    • Assigned user set to “ronin-15560 (at lighthouseapp)”

    Confirmed on FF 3.5.9, IE 8 & 7. (Windows Vista)

    Also, on the example provided above (http://www.woltlab.org/sortable2/)ou can't nest an item on the last children. Example: you can't drag something under "Features".

    Once I added the line of code provided by Kalou, it was fixed.
