Hi

I'm currently using a drag and drop element list from Yahoo! YUI tools ( http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/dragdrop/dd-reorder.html ) to give users a list of elements in the left column for them to choose from, then they drag them to the right to select what they want.

I also need to add the ability to let the user add new elements to the right box as they need, such as a text box and add button, similar to ( http://demos.mootools.net/Dynamic.Sortables )

can someone advise what code is needed for this, and for the points provide a working example.

Kind regards
Neil

hi,
if you are good at javascript, then its DOM you have to work on
instead of using the some other script, you can use javascript on drag drop function
you can dynamically add text box using javascript

Thanks
I had a look but in the end got one of my mates who writes the YUI code to write me a custom script.
