Could you set the z-index of the div that has been dragged?  The z-index would allow it to sit on top of the other divs.

$(function() {
    var start = function() {
        $(this).insertAfter(".ui-widget-content:last");
    }
    $( ".ui-widget-content" )
        .draggable({containment: "#main"},{ cursor: "move", cursorAt: { top: 56, left: 56 }, start:start })

How can define the z axis?

Hi Leakim971, the code did not work, when I mouse click on a certain div it moves instead another one far of it.

you did not notice my css update, I replaced your css ;-)
position must be absolute
Ashraf HassaneinAuthor Commented:
Now it is working :-) , I have a small problem, in your example you can freely move the div's up and down right and left without increasing its area, in mine I can only move it right and left if I want to move up and down I need to change its size, can you tell me what am I doing wrong?

add this css :

#main {
 height:100%;
}
