Subject:   Problems with draggable_element

From:   pjazzlg
I am playing around with the Ajax function draggable_element in Ruby
and having an interesting problem. I have the revert option set to true
(:revert=>true), The element I want to drag is dragged successfully,
but I cannot get it to stop dragging unless I double-click.
Once it stops dragging, it does not revert to its original position,
but remains where it was located at the time of the double-click.

Not sure what to look for next. Any help will be appreciated.

    I used the sample code from the cart shop demo (http://demo.script.aculo.us/shop) and found the same problem than pjazzlg. What is amasing is that I did an new test application using "draggable_element" over a component which worked yesterday. But now the element is sticked to my mouse and I need to double-click to stop the dragging!! Did I miss something or is there a bug??

    I can't give you a specific answer, but I can report that draggable_element is working for me.

    What you might want to try is to take the code from one of the demos that use draggable_element and then start modifying it to become more like what you want, while testing after each step to make sure it still works.
