Reorder by drag and drop

Post by kaveh1000 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 6:26 pm

I have a number of grouped controls, grouped vertically inside another group. I want to change the order of the grouped controls by drag and drop. I have not used dragdrop yet, but using mousestilldown to move the groups. Then on mouserelease I reorder and arrange by vertical position.

What is the best way to have a good interface for this action? Ideally I want the other groups to move out of the way and create space as needed. See attached illustration pls.

When I saw this I remembered a stack made in Aug 2017 and uploaded it.
See "Sample Stacks" or

You could also use (with much more features) my LCB widget "IconGrid",
see "Sample Stacks" or http://livecodeshare.runrev.com/stack/904/

Thank you so much Hermann, as always. I need to spend some time studying these, but they seem to be just what I need. :-)
