Light weight library

Hi All,

I am not sure if this is the place to post this. But I am looking for
a light weight drag and drop (sortable) library. I have looked around
and there are a few good libraries (Script.aculo.u s & Dojo), but they
are a little heavy and involved considering I am just looking for drag
and drop (sortable) functionality.

I am open to all suggestions. And thanks for any input.

I don't understand what could be sortable about drag and drop, but look

Perhaps the original poster was referring to its ability to reference the z-index by
placing the currently selected object on top of other objects?

If you are interested in writing a bit of JavaScript yourself the Fork
drag library is the most flexible and lightest I've seen. I'm biased
because I wrote it but I think it worked out well.

<URL: http://forkjavascript. org/drag/docs>

I haven't posted a sortable list example yet but I've made a few with
different techniques. It depends on the situation how the specific
code is written.

Just to clarify (sorry for any confusion) I am looking for something
that can do something similar to:

Thanks for the suggestions ;)

I'm really to the point now where I no longer care (much) about the size
of a javascript library so long as it's under 100k. Once you pass the
source through Mr. Crockford's most excellent JSMin (
http://javascript.crockford.com/jsmin.html ) and then set up a
compression scheme either static (
http://www.hunlock.com/blogs/Compres...ur_pages_zippy ) or
dynamic ( http://www.hunlock.com/blogs/Supercharged_Javascript ) even
the largest javascript applications shrink down to under 20k which is
perfectly acceptable.

This may be an alternative for you if you can't find exactly what you're
looking for.

Brings the selected objects ("windows" from DIVs in the above example) to the front,
resting "above" others "below" it.

By the looks of it this may be my only option. (thanks) I have a
little time I will wait a bit longer.

Any library suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks again ;)
