jQuery UI Sortable table and cell is shrinking while dragging tr

While dragging am facing two issues.


  1. table it self is shrinking when i have a hidden td.

  2. dragged tr cell(td)s are shrinking



This is the code of the sortable:

$('tbody').sortable({
items: ">tr",
appendTo: "parent",
opacity: 1,
containment: "document",
placeholder: "placeholder-style",
cursor: "move",
delay: 150,
});

Answer

The problem with the shrinking of the table is because you have a hidden cell (and in the placeholder that the sortable creates for you there are 5 cells and non of them are hidden. You can fix this by setting the 2nd td inside the placeholder as hidden once you start the drag:

$(this).find('.placeholder-style td:nth-child(2)').addClass('hidden-td')

The second problem is caused by the fact that the tr that you drag was changed to position: absolute and it is no longer have the properties of the table. You can fix this by setting display: table to that row:

ui.helper.css('display', 'table')

This change must be un-done when the the sorting is done.

Here is the complete change:

start: function(event, ui) {
    $(this).find('.placeholder-style td:nth-child(2)').addClass('hidden-td')
    ui.helper.css('display', 'table')
},
stop: function(event, ui) {
    ui.item.css('display', '')
}

Here is a working example

$('tbody').sortable({
  items: ">tr",
  appendTo: "parent",
  opacity: 1,
  containment: "document",
  placeholder: "placeholder-style",
  cursor: "move",
  delay: 150,
  start: function(event, ui) {
  	$(this).find('.placeholder-style td:nth-child(2)').addClass('hidden-td')
    ui.helper.css('display', 'table')
  },
  stop: function(event, ui) {
  	ui.item.css('display', '')
  }
});
