Sortable-Widget - Deactivation (disable) after mouse-capturing

Hi jQquery-Community,

I'm working on a project where we use jQuery and some UI-Widgets.

I have following scenario:

  • A stage with objects
  • The stage is draggable (own script)
  • The stage should also be draggable, if the user clicks and drags (left/right) over one of the mentioned objects
  • The objects should only be (re-)sortable, if the user is doing a "pull-down-gesture" on them

So I need to handle the mouse-events on my own. The problem with ''sortable'' is, that after a mouse-down, the widget captures this and even though I "disable" it before the delay is over (because it's not an "pull-down-gesture"), it still starts the sort-mechanism.

I already tried to use the "cancel"-method of the sortable-widget, but this behaves odd and is not what I actually want.

The solution for me is to check for the "disable"-option in the "_mouseStart" & "_mouseDrag" methods of the widget. I also started a pull for this (my first one, that's why I'm here :] ) -

So, is this a bug, a feature or do I totally misunderstand something?

Thanks in advance,

So you're dragging or sorting based on the direction of the movement? Why don't you have clearly identified handles for the separate actions?
