jQuery UI drag and drop in coldfusion - question

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to implement a coldfusion page with jQuery UI drag and drop features. I have a basic CF page that has 3 different containers - High School, Middle School and Elementary School. A query returns a resultset that populates individual divs with the names of the schools.

The user then matches up the individual school names to the school types. Once the matching is complete, I need to save the results to a DB. Attached is some code that I have but does not work.

To start it looks like the problem is that you don't have a draggable element.
You are saying that the element with an ID of "draggable" is draggable - BUT you don't have an element with that ID.
Keep in mind that an elements ID needs to be unique so you would only be able to set one element per page if using ID.
You need to give your element a class of draggable AND change your css & js FROM #draggable TO .draggable.

Try that ...
