Topic: Nested list inside Sortable list

Timo Werkhoven free asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior I have found the sortable items nested documentation from the drag and drop api, but i would like to combine the sortable list and the sortable items nested. I would like to make a nested list inside of a sortable list. Is there any way something like this would be possible?

Actual behavior The nested list doesn't behave as a nested list.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

<div class="d-flex absoluteFormList ">
    <ul id="formFieldsList" data-mdb-sorting="false" data-mdb-sortable="sortable" class="list-unstyled sortable-list border my-0 p-3 formFieldsList" data-mdb-connected-list="#formFieldArea" data-mdb-copy="true">
        <h4 class="text-center pt-2 pb-3 border-bottom" >Formuliervelden</h4>
        <li id="formTitle" class="border border-dark sortable-item formField formTitle"  data-field="left" data-type="formTitle" ><i class="fa-solid fa-bold me-3"></i>Titel</li>

<div class="border mx-2 p-3 formArea">
    <h4 class="text-center pt-2 pb-3 border-bottom" data-type="">Sleep formuliervelden hier  <i class="fa-solid fa-gear generalSettingsIcon"></i></h4>
    <fieldset id="formFieldArea" data-mdb-sortable="sortable" class="list-unstyled sortable-list formFieldArea" data-mdb-connected-list="#formFieldsList"> 

        <p>here my other list items</p>

        <div id="sortable-multi-1-1" data-mdb-sortable="sortable" class="sortable-list d-flex align-items-start" data-mdb-item-class="sortable-item-nested"></div>
            <div id="sortable-multi-2-1" data-mdb-sortable="sortable" class="sortable-item-nested" data-mdb-connected-list="#sortable-multi-2-2" data-mdb-drag-handle=".drag-handler">
                <h4 class="text-center pt-2 drag-handler">Done</h4>
                <div class="sortable-item">item 6</div>

Unfortunately, I don't understand how it would work. Please add a snippet with a more extensive example and and describe in more detail what you would like to sort. From which list to which to drag items etc.

I have created a snippet here:

I will explain in more detail what i would like to do. I want to make a sortable list with the drag and drop api, but inside of that list i would like to create a nested item. A user should be able to drag items from the sortable list inside of this nested item. This nested item should behalve just like a regular sortable item, but with its own sortable items inside.

Bassicly what i want to do is combine the Sortabe list that is provided in the documentation with the nested list from the documentation. In my snipped you can see that i have created a nested list inside of a sortable list. I can drag this item around just like a normal list item, but when i do the contents of the nested list come out of the nested list and into the parent sortalbe list. Is there any way something like this would be possible?
