For the last three days I have been working on developing a view panel that will display the users site stats and there sites info on one of my site. I plan to use a absolute div with a title bar that is the handle for the drag and drop control. My problem is that when I click the title bar it does not drag the div right like the div. I have tried at least 12 ways to drag and drop and all of them failed to keep the position of the mouse when I moved the mouse. My curreent version of the drag and drop is really messed up. I was wondering if someone can help me fix my code so when I click the title bar of the div it will drag normally with the mouse?

here is my current drag and drop javascript code:

var x;
var y;
var drag = false;
elm = document.getElementById('view_title');
elm.onmousedown = function(e) {
    e = e || event;
     target = document.getElementById('view');
     x = e.clientX;
     y = e.clientY;
     ox = elm.style.left;
     oy = elm.style.top;
     drag = true;
    document.documentElement.onmousemove = function(e) {
      e = e || event;
      
      if(drag == true) {
      target.style.left = (ox-e.clientX-x)+'px';
      target.style.top = (oy-e.clientY-y)+'px';
      }
    }
    document.documentElement.onmouseup = function(e) {
      e = e || event;
      drag = false;
    }
}

here is my div code:

<div id="view"><div id="view_title">Loading</div><div id="view_content">Please wait....</div></div>

And finally my current CSS:

#view {
    width: 400px;
    height: 350px;
    visibility: hidden;
    z-index: 99;
    top:100px;
    left:100px;
    background-image: url(../images/view.gif);
    font-style: oblique;
    position: absolute;
}
view_title {}

Thanks for your help.

Hi matthewl,

try this over at line#4:

var x;
var y;
var drag = false;
// Fixing line#4 >>>
var elm = ( function() {
   return document.getElementById("view_title");
} );


// more stuff >>>

Hello essential. I tried it and that has just made elm return a function and it was not returning the page element reference that should trigger the drag and drop events.

Thanks I am still trying things that may work.

What I mostly need help with is calculating the div position of the view div when I click and drag the view_title

like on line 17 and 18 of the JS code.

Oh and have a wonderful day.

Hi,

i've provided you a simple demo, that you can easily expand and use.

The coords.y( elementId ) and coords.x( elementId ) will provide you the exact position of the target element of your choice.
