Inheritable / Dynamic Draggable assignment in conjunction with jQuery .on()

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Am trying to determine if there is any way to use Draggable in conjunction with jQuery's .on() method, or to achieve a similar result, such that any dynamically created element of a given class under a parent object will inherit the Draggable configuration.

 

jQuery doc -> http://api.jquery.com/on/

 

I saw a previous conversation thread

that referenced an add-in called waitUntilExists which has this approximate effect, but only for a single names element at a time(plus looks like it may no longer work since jQuery 3...)

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hi @shaunhurley

 

Do you have an example of what you're trying to do? There's a MutationObserver that can be used to detect when the DOM changes, but I really don't see the point of using something like that. Elements don't magically show up in the DOM. Some action is necessary to create and insert an element, so whenever that action takes place, create your draggable.

Thanks @OSUblake, you are absolutely correct, that is exactly what I ended up doing.  I found (and had a brief look at MutationObservers, but ended up constructing them individually.  Basically I was working within the constraints of some existing code, and being lazy :)

 

Appreciate the respone!

I feel for you! Having to update code you didn't write is the worst. Good luck with that! :)
