How to add panel before and after panel

Report designer layout contains Bootstrap 3 panels.
Detail panel has

Add group
button which should add new panels before and after it.

This is implemented in onclick event handler using jquery prepend and append:

var $this = $(this),
$parentpanel = $this.parents(".designer-panel").get(0);
$parentpanel.prepend('<div class="panel designer-panel">' +
'<div class="panel-body designer-panel-body" style="height:1px">' +
'</div>' +
'<div class="bg-warning">' +
'<div class="panel-footer"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-up">' +
'</i> Group heade {0}: <span id="band{0}_expr" contenteditable="true">"group expression"</span>' +
'</div></div></div>');

$parentpanel.append('<div class="panel designer-panel">' +
'<div class="panel-body designer-panel-body" style="height:1px">' +
'</div>' +
'<div class="bg-warning">' +
'<div class="panel-footer"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-up">' +
'</i> Group footer {0}' +
'</div></div></div>');

});


If clicked in Add band button html appears instead of panel.

It looks like jquery preoend and append does not add dom objects work for unknown reason.

How to fix this so that new panels appear before and after detail panel ?



$(function() {

var startpos,
selected = $([]),
offset = { top: 0, left: 0 };


$('#designer-detail-addband').on('click', function () {
var $this = $(this),
$parentpanel = $this.parents(".designer-panel").get(0);

$parentpanel.prepend('<div class="panel designer-panel">' +
'<div class="panel-body designer-panel-body" style="height:1px">' +
'</div>' +
'<div class="bg-warning">' +
'<div class="panel-footer"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-up">' +
'</i> Group heade {0}: <span id="band{0}_expr" contenteditable="true">"groupexpression"</span>' +
'</div></div></div>');

$parentpanel.append('<div class="panel designer-panel">' +
'<div class="panel-body designer-panel-body" style="height:1px"></div>' +
'<div class="bg-warning">' +
'<div class="panel-footer"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-up">' +
'</i> Group footer {0}' +
'</div></div></div>');

});






$(".designer-panel-body").droppable({
accept: ".designer-field"
});

$(".designer-field").draggable({
start: function (event, ui) {
var $this = $(this);
if ($this.hasClass("ui-selected")) {
selected = $(".ui-selected").each(function () {
var el = $(this);
el.data("offset", el.offset());
});
} else {
selected = $([]);
$(".designer-field").removeClass("ui-selected");
}
offset = $this.offset();
},

drag: function (event, ui) {
// drag all selected elements simultaneously
var dt = ui.position.top - offset.top, dl = ui.position.left - offset.left;
selected.not(this).each(function () {
var $this = $(this);
var elOffset = $this.data("offset");
$this.css({ top: elOffset.top + dt, left: elOffset.left + dl });
});
}
});



$(".panel-resizable").resizable({
minWidth: "100%",
maxWidth: "100%",
minHeight: 1
});
});

.panel-resizable {
min-height: 1px;
overflow: hidden;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

.designer-field {
border: 1px solid lightgray;
white-space: pre;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
}

.designer-panel-body {
min-height: 1px;
overflow: hidden;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

.panel-footer {
padding: 0;
}

.designer-panel, .panel-body {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

Answer

I think your issue is here:

$parentpanel = $this.parent(".designer-panel");

jQuery parent only goes one level up the DOM, and looking at your HTML the first div with .designer-panel is several levels up from your anchor. If you change it to the code below then you should hopefully get the element you want.

$parentpanel = $this.parents(".designer-panel").get(0);
