Hi, I am very close to solving this just need a little push. I have a script that I am writting that allows you to drag an image. When you let go I want to send the position to data.php that will then record it. In firebug I used console.log and can see the x and y but when I pass the data I get object object.

Here is my jquery (it has php mixed in)
<script>

$(function() {
$( "#draggable<?=$x;?>" ).draggable({
        snap: true,

        drag:
                function(event,ui) {
                        theUserPos<?=$x;?> = ui.position;
                        console.log(theUserPos<?=$x;?>);
                },

        stop:
                function ( event, ui ) {
                        alert(theUserPos<?=$x;?>);
                        // parameters will be a string "id[]=1&id[]=3&id[]=10"...etc
                        //$("#info").load("update.php?"+theUserPos<?=$x;?>);





                        // send new sort data to process
                        $.ajax("data.php?"+theUserPos<?=$x;?>);
                }


        });

});
</script>

Open in new window

Because ui.position is an array of the top and left values, to get either one use

ui.position.top
ui.position.left
