Hi.

Not sure what you mean. Is each of the "items" listed its own group? It may just be that you have to set "the selectGroupedControls" to "true". Read about this in the dictionary, and experiment.

Or if I am not understanding, write back.

I'm sure after three years Kevin, this has been solved. Any luck on a comprehensive solution? I'm working on this now for fun and just need to solve the scrolling issue.

Thanks,

E

Look at the relayer command and see if that helps.

Thanks Jacque,

That’s great advice. I do use that command to reorder the list once an item is dropped into its new place. Of course this assumes the layers are supposed to be from top to bottom on the y-axis. Can’t think of a reason not to have it like that.

Anyway, the behavior is done and I’ll post a demo stack as soon as I clean it up if anyone is interested.

Here's a demo of drag/drop to reorder a list of grouped items. It uses graphics as the list items for now, but should support any type of list item as well as mixed list items or different sizes.

Any feedback is welcome and if someone has solved this already, I'd love to see the code if available.

Hi trinitylogics,
Thank you for sharing.
I noticed an issue when you drag an item to the end of the list.
For example if you drag item 1 to the end list it seems disappear but it comes just after item 11 with a reduced height.
