start drag fails in ie7+8 when started on a element and distance set

Reported by: immoserver Owned by: immoserver
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.8.18

Blocked by: Blocking:


when you open the test in ie7+8 and start dragging a li on the text or the dot everything works fine. but when you start dragging on the a element "link" then the drag wont start.

When you remove the distance option it works.

this also happens when the drag starts on an image, updated testcase:

might be related to ticket #7359

other browsers work fine.

It's going to be true for anything that's natively draggable.

I've done a little research and stumbled upon this fix:

adding this line

document.ondragstart = function () { return false; };

disables IEs native dragging "feature" and resolves the problem.

shouldnt draggable/sortable add this when needed ?

Asynchronous determination of whether to handle an interaction is actually a much larger issue than just completely disabling native drag.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project! I can no longer reproduce the issue using the latest jQuery and jQuery UI using the info provided.

If you can still reproduce it, please feel free to reply to this ticket with a test case showing the problem. Thanks!
