jQuery noConflict() saves the day!

All these years I have been only using jQuery as a Java Script framework. But I came across this situation where I had to use both jQuery and Prototype in one of my projects. This unavoidable situation resulted in jQuery functions not working as its supposed to. The obvious reason was a conflict between the two libraries. A Google search revealed that this is a common problem and the good news was jQuery already had a solution for it.

Drag & Drop on webpages

Anyone who has the necessity to drag & drop images or layers should look into the DHTML API, Drag & Drop for Images and Layers. Its a really cool API as I played around it quite a bit. Most importantly this library is a free software and released under LGPL.

The thing I like the most is the extendability of certain features. Also it has a very good documentation. I could easily add JavaScript code when an image is dragged or when dropped. I used Ajax in this case. When the user drags and drops an image I updated its position via Ajax to his user record on the server. So next time he logs in I could load the image in the position where he placed it last. Some basic stuff like that. It could really add a lot of interactivity to a webpage.
