Hello,

i was wondering if there is a way to  assign sortable to $( "#canvas .widget" ) using live method or such ?
$( "#canvas .widget" ).sortable();

Open in new window


Obviously something like this wont work. $( "#canvas .widget" ).live('sortable', function(){});

Any idea ?

@sahanz: live method is used to event handler binding, much like bind() method only difference being that in live() binding, the event will be attached even if the current selector is available now.

So i need to know why do you want to use the live method. Or precisely, what is the requirement?

Hi there.

I have this div

<div id="canvas">

</div>

from an ajax call I load some divs in to this #canvas and those are having a class called "widget"

so after getting these div.widget s I want them to be sortable.

you need to make it sortable every time the ajax load finishes

That's what I thought, the ajax call actually append to #canvas and the ajax load works few times, so that means on each load I have to do the sortable right?
