Sortable: Cursor is not reset after sorting in IE9

Reported by: peter.morlion Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.8.16
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug in jQuery UI or in Internet Explorer, but this is the issue:

If you want to indicate to a user that something is sortable, the

option isn't sufficient. This is only active when sorting. So you could indicate something is sortable by adding
cursor: move;
to your css. This works in Chrome (and probably other browsers), but not in IE.

In Internet Explorer, it works as long as you don't sort. After you've sorted, the cursor won't change back to

, unless you click somewhere.

I've put this in a JsFiddle. In the JsFiddle, I've used jQuery 1.4.4 because that's what we use, but it's the same with jQuery 1.7. The jQuery UI version is 1.8.7.

I can confirm this bug in IE9. I happen to be using compatibility view as well. I have tried adding a click() call, see below, in both the stop and update event, all it manages to do is reset the cursor, but then a second click is required to get things sortable again.

stop: function(e,ui){

$('handleSelector', ui.item).click();


As well as the same click() line in the update event, also tried clicking on parent()s.

The test cases work fine in IE8 and IE10. This appears to be limited to IE9.

Here's a minified test case showing the issue still occurs in master - Interestingly the issue is not present using the cursor option (i.e.

$( '#sortable').sortable({ cursor: 'move' })
but it is if
cursor: move;
is defined in CSS.

We no longer support IE9.
