#15273 new bug

Using a draggable with a connected sortable causes error if sort returns false

Description (last modified by pvbergen)

Using a draggable with a connected sortable causes an "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '0' of null" when sortable.sort returns false. I guess that the sortable destroys the dragged element and draggable wants to access it afterwards.


  sort: function(e, t) {
    return false;
  connectToSortable: ".sortable",


Current workaround

  • Return true in sort and handle cancellation in stop callback.
  • Use $(t.item).trigger('mouseup'); in draggable.drag to stop drag.


I want to implement cancelling of a drag operation into a sortable. Sort returning false cancels the operation on mousemove instead of waiting for mouseup and stop.
