How to do the data sorting by dragging to the desired position in asp.net, c# and Jquery?

Hi,

I have list of product items.Product items are coming from the sql server table.

Before dragging, product items display in the below order:
Product One
Product Two
Product Three
Product Four

After dragging, product items display in the following order:
Product One
Product Four
Product Two
Product Three

We need to save the sorting order in the table. How this can be achieved by asp.net, c# and jquery?

Do you intend that the user's sort selections should be maintained from session to session?  That is, the next time the user opens the site, the sort choices he had before are still active?  OR, do you just want the sort choices made by the user to be active for the current session, disappearing once the user closes the browser window?  It will make a big difference in what you will have to do.

You will need to be able to save an index value that is associated with a table row.  This may mean that you have to create a table that specifically maintains display order information, or you may be able to add this index value to the actual data row that you want to display.  Do you understand what I mean?  If so, do you know which you would be able to do?

I'm sorry, I only got part of your response, everything after the part where you quote me as saying "...that specifically maintains display order information"  Could you resend that, please? Thanks.

Hi,

On Page load, I am going to display product list according to the datetime.
I have sql server table that stores the following information: product names, order.

User can do the sorting by dragging the rows. This information will be saved in the table.
That means, we have to create a table that specifically maintains display order information.

How this can be done in asp.net, c#, jquery?
