JQuery draggable helper

Hi,

I am using a helper to create a new elemnt to drag. This element is initially set to be positioned absolutely -42px from top . But, when the helper gets activated the top position gets reset to 0.

Is there a way to prevent the absolute position getting reset?

This also affects "revert". i.e when the element is not dropped on the target it reverts back to initial position,  which isnt the absolute position i set within css

Thanks

But what's your idea?
top: -42px will put your element off screen, what are you trying to accomplish?

well, no because its positioned relative to another element.

essentially, it sits on top of another element.

I want the "helper" to maintain this position, but it goes back to its actual position on the page.

Well, you must be doing something wrong in your code.
Here's a working sample based on the one on the official jQuery UI website:

Original sample: http://jqueryui.com/droppable/#revert

I changed it a bit to try to simulate what you described but the final result was not the same as you have.
