There is no provision of disabling the proxy used while dragging an element.

So, we can't move the original element without using proxy.

That's true, but it's not a bug, but a enhancement request.

Infact if a programmer writing code for dragging, then he assumes that user will be able to drag the original element, not the proxy. Instead, there should be an option to enable the proxy.

Even after sorting, the iframe in original DIV is also getting refreshed. I think, this is a bug.

resolution: → fixed
status: newclosed

this is fixed in the 1.6 branch - it supports the modes "original", "clone" and function and now defaults to "original".

Which option needs to be used to change this?

Even though I use original, when dragging is completed, the iFrame is getting refreshed.

How can I reopen it?

I'm dealing with the same problem myself. Unfortunately, there's nothing they can do about that. It's just the way browsers work: when you move an iframe (or the ancestor of an iframe) to a new position in the DOM, it reloads the iframe. The only way to prevent it is to avoid moving the iframe to a new DOM position and only move it using absolute positioning.
