link event firing on sortable with connect list

Reported by: rambat Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.8.7
Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.7.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

If you have 2 sortable lists populated with links inside the unordered list elements dropping the element onto a connected list fires the click event.

Dropping on the same list does not fire the event.

Tested with 1.7.2.

You can duplicate this error by injecting a link into a list item on the demo page (

Then drag that item into the connected list.

I just discovered this today as well, definitely a connectWith issue.

Haven't had it happen in IE8 yet, happens in Chrome and Firefox mostly consistently; occasionally it doesn't fire the link.

I ran into this issue as well. The click event isn't being prevented when the sorted item moves to a connected sortable. If the sorted item remains in its original list, the click event is properly prevented.

I tracked this down to the _preventClickEvent property used by ui.mouse. It's set to true in _mouseUp(), but it's set for the original container-- which is fine, unless the container changed (which is the case when the item moves to a connected sortable). I've pushed a patch to a GitHub fork that changes the click event prevention to be tied to the event target, not the container.
