#3511 closed bug (fixed)

Draggable: Incorrect helper checking

Reported by: vlesierse Owned by: paul
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: ui.draggable Version: 1.6rc2
Keywords: draggable Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


For my solution I assign the helper as a function. This function modifies the draggable element by setting its position to absolute.

See my example:

    helper: function(e) { return $(this).css("position", "absolute"); }

This results in that after I dropped the element it will remove my element because of a check inside the clear function of the draggable extension. It checks if the option is not original but in my opinion it should check if the element not equels the helper. See my suggestion below:

_clear: function() {
    if(this.options.helper != 'original' && !this.cancelHelperRemoval) this.helper.remove();
    //if($.ui.ddmanager) $.ui.ddmanager.current = null;
    this.helper = null;
    this.cancelHelperRemoval = false;


_clear: function() {
    if(this.helper[0] != this.element[0] && !this.cancelHelperRemoval) this.helper.remove();
    //if($.ui.ddmanager) $.ui.ddmanager.current = null;
    this.helper = null;
    this.cancelHelperRemoval = false;

This will fix my problems because I would like to drag the original because it could contain object or embed tags for Flash and Silverlight. Only when it is set to relative I cannot move the element from one column to another.
