Manage and sort data with drag-and-drop

By MaryWeilage Editor ·
This week's Web Development Zone newsletter describes how to manage and sort data with drag-and-drop in IE.

Is this solution useful to you? Can you think of a grid control that Phillip Perkins' coworker could use in place of IE's drag-and-drop functionality? If you don't use IE, which browser do you use and why? Let us know.

Browser of Choice? Firefox.

by Colinmac In reply to Manage and sort data with ...

This solution isn't particularly useful to me, because I try to avoid using solutions that only work in Internet Explorer (IE).
In fact, I've all but given up using IE in favour of Mozilla Firefox. Why?
a) I found that IE frequently flaunts standards in for example, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) that most other browsers adhere to. Therefore, if you don't use IE you can get stuffed, appears to be the attitude.
b) Firefox is much more customisable - I get to choose which bells and whistles *I* want.
c) I love tabbed browsing and the extra (optional)attachments help me work better/faster.
d) I get a lot less problems with my pc than my colleagues that are still using IE. (Every time I get a virus or spyware - admittedly rarely - it's because the kids have been browing/downloading using IE).

So, in summary, I keep IE for badly-coded sites and use Firefox for most everything else.

Is there a Firefox-compatible version of this code?
