Topic: Sortable on drop event

cdenby pro asked 5 years ago

is there an event I can use to trigger a write back to the database when performing a sort with the sortable plugin? Something like onDragStop or something like that?

Damian Gemza staff answered 5 years ago

Dear cdenby,

Yes, there exists an event called stop(event, ui) which is fired after a drag event stop.

Please take a look at how you can use it:

$(function () {
        stop: function(event, ui) {
          console.log('Sortable stop');

Best Regards,

Do you have full documentation to know the sortable plugin functions?

After a bit of research, this is just the jquery-ui plugin.

You may want to use the change event. This is only triggered if the sort changes.
