I received a link to J-Query Draggable from CodeCruiser...many thanks!

Is there a way to save the position in a Session Variable for storage and use later?

I want my users to be able to save their "Dash Board" and see the same dashboard on page load.

    There are few ways to achieve this,

    You can maintain the positions on client side in hidden controls and then save on server side on postback.

    Or you can use page methods to save the position in real time from JavaScript

    You have a suggestion?
    Seems to me that the first one is closest to what I was asking?  Would that be the dotnetcurry link?

    No both links are about page methods. What if there is no post back and user just closes the browser after dragging and dropping controls? Or do you have a save button?

    See example at bottom of this page
