Sortable: Placeholder height not being calculated/applied properly in IE7/6

Reported by: bbonifield Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: haspatch Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When using a sortable in IE7/6, the height of the placeholder element is not inheriting the height of the current target draggable element. UI tries to add inline CSS for this purpose, but it seems to be failing in IE < 8.

I still see the issue in IE7 against 1.10.0 - It looks like as the OP stated 4 years ago the inline style is being added but it not taking effect in IE7 for whatever reason, but works fine in IE8+.

At this point, we're not going to invest any more time into searching for a workaround that we're comfortable implementing. If anyone has a proposed fix, we'll gladly review a pull request.
