On body:overflow:auto, Chrome scrolls down automatically for long sortable lists

When the body overflow style is set to 'auto', Chrome seems to scroll down automatically to the bottom on long sortable lists. If the style is reset to 'inherit', this behaviour disappears, although the browser will display scroll bars in both situations.

This was not tested in IE.

Firefox seems to be okay.

With overflow: inherit, the sorting seems noticeably slower, so there is probably some workaround code active that is not properly activated for overflow: auto.

Hi muisit,

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project. Could you alter your test case to show the problem on page load instead of after the button is pressed? Also if you could remove as much CSS as possible to just show the issue you're seeing it would be helpful. Right now there's a lot of code so it's difficult to see what's going on.

If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

Sorry, the e-mail for the last 2 comments ended up in my spam box as a 99% possible spam message.

Anyway, I further minimised the example:

It now only creates the sortable on a 50-item list (it needs to be this long to become sortable in the output box). On Chrome, when I drag the top item, the window scrolls down on every mouse-move until it is at the bottom.

if I remove the float style on the main sortable container DIV, the behaviour seems correct by the way.

This happens because the

has no height; try adding
body { border: 2px solid black; 
} to see what I'm talking about.

If you force the

to have a height this works fine:
