sortable: receive: ui.item references the source element

Blocked by: Blocking:

I used to be able to manipulate/replace a dropped element (dragged from a draggable with helper: "clone") in the sortable's receive handler using ui.item. But now ui.item references the source element.

This is as designed. The property you want is ui.helper.

Altering ui.helper seems to have no effect for me. And I'm not sure I understand why ui.item and ui.sender both refer to the same element now. ui.item used to refer to the dropped element.

Something changed in 1.7, my old code was working fine in 1.6. Its not clear to me what the workaround should be to alter the contents of a dropped element in a sortable's receive callback.

This makes it work for me, no guarantees tough.

The patch is against 1.7.2 ..

Thank you! sortable-item-sender.patch is exactly what I need. Similar use case - I alter ui.item with html() or replaceWith() in the receive handler.

Without the patch, there's no easy way to alter the item before it's inserted to the Sortable, as ui.helper is a throw-away clone, and ui.sender (in my use case) is merely a thumbnail image. Unpatched seems to always clone ui.sender.

Thanks for the patch, I had to use this on v1.8 to get it working, otherwise there is no easy way to manipulate the dropped item.

Where can I find this patch?

I also applied this patch in order to be able to modify the dropped element in the sortreceive callback. Works with 1.8.18.

This is still valid. And the attached patch works. The lines have moved, but they're here now:

I'm taking this off of Richard as he hasn't touched this ticket in 4 years.
