Hello,

I'm try to replicate the below demo and I'm able to but I don't see a way to persist the order of the newly sorted list of elements.  I need to find a way to track something for the element (div) on the client side to use when I update the element in the database.  Below is the demo I'm working with

You can handle in the following way:-

$("#sortable").sortable({
	placeholder: 'ui-state-highlight',
	stop: function(event, ui) {
		var sortedItems = $('#sortable').sortable('toArray');
		//Ajax call to webservice to update the items in the array
			}
		});

Open in new window


"sorteditems" will be the list of items after sorted, make a ajax call and pass the array as a parameter. Update the database on webservice call.
