#2754 closed bug (wontfix)

UI Sortable drag/drop does not create new nested lists

Reported by: vlucas Owned by: paul
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: ui.core Version: 1.2.3
Keywords: sortable, nested lists Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


jQuery UI library does not include the ability to drag and drop items in a new nested list under an existing item as would be expected by the user. This is a bug rather than a feature because it is possible for the user to UN-nest all items, but it is NOT possible to RE-nest them in the same way.

Expected/desired functionality:

  1. Can drag all items anywhere you want
  2. You can place any item to be nested under any other existing item by moving it to the right of the item just under the item you want it to be nested under

Above example based on the old "interface" library for previous versions of jQuery.

Actual functionality:

  1. Can drag all nested items to top level (flat list) or at the same level as another nested item
  2. Attempting to place items under another one does not work

Based on the newest version of jQuery using UI 1.5b2

We are working on a way to do this, featured in the treeview plugin that will come to UI in version 1.6. However, this feature will not make it into the core of the sortables, because it will decrease performance enourmously.
