Drag & Drop Table Rows with JavaScript – REDIPS.drag

REDIPS.drag – JavaScrip that enables you to easily drag and drop table rows as well as table content.

REDIPS.drag also takes care about background color of table cells and table rows. When dragging begins, color of each table cell is saved to the array and returned in a moment of dropping or highlighting current table row.

Currently it is not possible to drag table columns – only table rows. As REDIPS.drag evolved from dragging table content to dragging rows, hopefully in one of the next releases there will be option to drag table columns as well.

As users interact with the grid, the grid talks with the server-side script letting it know what the user is requesting. The server-side script then provides JSON encoded data for the plugin to update the table.
