Tags: javascript,jquery,css,jquery-ui,jquery-ui-droppable

Problem :

I know how to use jquery ui droppable.

But i'm not sur if it's possible to do this :

see a live example with this fiddle

I have a list of element in a div which is in overflow:hidden :

html :

<div id="list">
    <p id="draggable_1">Element 1</p>
    <p id="draggable_2">Element 2</p>
    <p id="draggable_3">Element 3</p>

css :


javascript / jQuery :

    drop: function () {

If i try to dropp an element like draggable_1 outside the div #list, the element is not visible. It's logic because the parent is in overflow:hidden

do you know if it's possible to drop that element outside ? I need to have this div with overflow:hidden

Solution :

You can use clone helper to clone element on drag start and append it to the body with appendTo option:

    helper: 'clone',
    appendTo: 'body',
    start: function(e){
        $(this).css('visibility', 'hidden');
    stop: function(){
        $(this).css('visibility', 'visible');
