Sortable: Dragging SWFs causes the SWFs to be re-created

Reported by: rantkowi Owned by:

Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.7.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

I am trying to use jQuery UI Draggable to allow the user to drag around a DIV that contains innerHTML which defines a HTML object such as a flash SWF.

When the user begins to drag (and I also believe when the user stops dragging) I noticed that the plugin object is re-created (and in the process, the previous state of what the user was doing with the plugin is lost.)

I assume that this is happening because of the call to:

var clonedEl = elm.cloneNode(true);

inside of dragstart : function(e) (in the file idrag.js.)

What is idrag.js? Where is that coming from? We can't fix your code without even taking a look.

This is only happening on a sortable, and not on a draggable: Not sure if we want to fix this bug, but I'll mark it as open for now.

I'm going to close this since I have a feeling people aren't sorting SWF objects anymore.
