    Hi. very gud article which has so many plug-ins. but is there a particular plug-in tat allows movement of table cells within the same row? e.g: [1,2,3]. when [3] is moved to the front then the row should be [3,1,2], which means the other cells will be moved to the left when it is moved.
    currently i found a library which uses javascript to implement. but the prob is tat when the row is [1,2,3] n i move [3] to first, the result is [3,2,1]. which means it switches places. i tried to manipulate the javascript file but its just too complicated to ammend.
    so if there is any plug-in in jQuery it would be really helpfull. thanks

    I have used draggable and droppable in my project but I am not satisfied with what I wanted to achieve so I have created new demo using simple mouse down, up and mouse enter event.
    I hope this will help others.

    many good examples, but I think the best way to implement the various interesting features is to add them to the plugin jQuery UI
    I had less difficulty to add functionality to my site via this way is

    These are great examples! I too am particularly interested in the Nettuts one – 14th point above.. [and am a complete newbie!] question is can that be implemented on any link / any website ? or we need to have objects where we specifically have to specify earlier that this is ‘draggable’ Just like ReadItLater, where we can save to read later, I want to see if I can implement it for myself where I can drag and drop to read it later ?

    Thanks vm
