Video: Part 4 – Implementing Drag & Drop functionality

Do you want to add Drag & Drop functionality to your APEX applications?
That’s what this video is all about.

You’ll see me working on the list created in the previous episodes (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) and add the necessary JS to implement.

During the video, I follow this companion blog post (rimblas.com/blog/2016/08/implementing-drag-drop-in-your-apex-applications). Bookmark it and use it as a reference in the future.

In this 41 minute video you’ll find:

  • 02:08 to 03:22 — Add the jQuery UI library to the page.
  • 03:23 to 04:40 — Explaining how elements get re-arranged.
  • 04:40 to 08:02 — Make region/report sortable.
  • 08:02 to 16:04 — Identify the elements to sort and explaining how we actually capture the new order.
  • 16:05 to 24:17 — The AJAX call to save changes (plus some debugging), wrapping up.
  • 24:18 to 42:25 — Implementing the same thing on a regular Classic Report.

    Thanks for new great presentation. But “it’s easier than you think” — I think unfortunately no, not easier :) I’m sure most of apex developers couldn’t immediately reproduce this solution correctly without copy/pasting your code.
