Not able to get initial offset for the dragged element in firefox

Reported by Krish | August 25th, 2009 @ 09:52 AM

currentDraggable = new Draggable(textBoxId,

onStart: function(draggable, event) {
    targetElement = draggable.element;
    offset = Element.positionedOffset(targetElement);  //WORKS IE8, Chrome 2.0, Opera 9 -- Fails Firefox 3.5.2,
    toppos = offset["top"];
    leftpos = offset["left"];

onEnd: similar .. Works across browsers


When you attempt to get the offset in the onStart the first time in Firefox 3.4.2, it is not defined.
It only happens on the first drag, on subsequent drags both start and end offsets are ok.
The other browsers mentioned are ok always.


Don't know who to assign to .. so just leaving the default. Sorry Thomas ;)
