Sortables does not work in IE (1.2.1 Release) LIVE DEMO BROKEN

Reported by Sencerd | August 20th, 2008 @ 11:06 AM

Look at the sortables demos in Firefox, they work as expected, now look at them in IE6/7, there are so many issues, the bullet point disappears, the numbers get mixed up, all sorts.

So I have a sortable list of divs, with cloning and opacity, in firefox it works fine, in IE the cloned element does not stay in the correct position under the mouse, and when dragging upwards it always snaps to the top, instead of where the mouse is.

    Sortables are completely broken in IE7. My biggest problem is you can drag down, but you can't drag up.

    How did this get released if the demo doesn't even work? http://demos.mootools.net/Sortables

    Why isn't this being addressed for 1.2.2, surely if it's important enough to have a demo then it's important enough to work cross browser?

    After a bit of playing I worked out the problem is caused by having position:relative on the lists parent element, removing that attribute makes the sortable function as expected, this is a problem I have encountered in other parts of mootools, getPosition seems to break when you are using position:relative in IE

    Since it isn't being addressed in 1.2.2, maybe you should change the following text on the demo page: http://demos.mootools.net/Sortables

    Back in the 90s you sorted items in a list with arrows... and it worked. In the 00's you could drag items and pretend it works.

    Hi, that sortables bug was caused by wrong positioning in mootools. I have well tested fix, so wait to 1.2.2 version.

    Hi, does anyone know how to patch this? I have a UL I made sortable and in IE7 I get errors thrown when clone is enabled, and LI's dropped outside the original container if I don't clone, (but set 'constrain' to true).

    you mention a fix for 1.2.2, is there a way i can get that fix now?

    I'm almost certain this was resolved, current tests for sortables in IE6 all work fine. Putting on hold until I can confirm, unless OP can do so.

    I don't have time to test the custom code I referred to in the OP, but the demos on mootools.net are still using 1.2.0, so they are still broken. When are they going to be updated?

  • fakedarren

    fakedarren February 8th, 2010 @ 05:52 PM

    1.2.4 is almost certainly the last 1.2 release so the entire website will be updated as part of the 1.3 release. We know we can and should improve the demos, so I guess the answer is when 1.3 is released.

    I can only apologise for the time taken to respond to the original ticket - we'll try to do better in the future (starting now).
