      Hello,

      I've been lightly using the scriptaculous library for several months
      and like it, but I am considering switching to Yahoo's UI library
      mostly because the documention for scriptaculous is lacking.

      Before doing so, I need to know if Yahoo's UI library can produce the
      following behavior as demonstrated here:

      http://www.gregphoto.net/sortable/advanced/

      Specifically, the ability to sort items within a group plus sort the
      groups themselves. I'm already using a variation of this, which my
      application greatly depends on.

      All comments welcome.

      Yes, this could easily be built using the YUI Libraries. However, I am not aware of anyone who has built one (yet). Dav Glass dav.glass@yahoo.com davglass.com

          realistindenial,

          A good place to start with this kind of implementation would be Adam Moore's Drag & Drop documentation on the YUI website, specifically his Sortable List example.

          You'd need merely to change the CSS some, and then make the containing blocks for the larger list into draggable list items themselves.  Shouldn't be terribly hard to do, and absolutely supported by YUI.

          Regards,
          Eric

            I have previously seen this example and you're right, it does behave similarly. I'm wondering if the behavior of the drop can be changed so that the item isn't moved until the mouse button is released inside the container.
             
            Thanks,

              John,

              Absolutely.

              None of the behaviors here are hard-wired into the Drag & Drop Utility — the move-during-drag behavior is something that Adam implemented as part of that example.  (See this post for a bit more on that particular example.)

              Instead of moving the the <li> in the onDragOver event, you could choose to do so only in the onDragDrop event — the event that fires at the completion of a Drag/Drop interaction when the dragged item is dropped on a legitimate target.

              Regards,
              Eric
