Draggable element in sortable goes out of scrollbar

Reported by: kunalshewale Owned by: kunalshewale
Priority: minor Milestone: none
Component: ui.sortable Version: 1.10.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

I Have a long nested list to which i apply overflow-y:Auto, each of the element has sortable widget attached to it.

Now the issue which we are facing is that the drag-gable element goes out of scroll-bar container which is not desirable, i do understand that the position is set to absolute and z-Index to 1000 and i also understand while dragging the element it takes into consideration the height of the parent element and it let me drag up-to that calculated height only.

Changing the position to relative makes me drag the element only inside the scrollbar but then also the hieght it lets me drag upto is too much.

Desired Behavior:We should be able to drag the element only inside the scrollbar and that too not beyond the last element bottom offset position.

Js fiddle link for the issue is :

Thanks for the update however my requirement is that none of draggable element should go out of the scrollable area i.e. even the parent (green in this case) should not be draggable beyond the scrollable area.

You can do that by moving the containment to the outer
