JQuery PHP Save position of draggable items using While loop


Recommended Posts

There are a lot of solutions out there as to how to save the position of draggable DIVs but I haven't found any that will help with using a While loop in php.

I have a database of "needs" and I want to display all the "needs" that match the persons username and status=inprogress. This could be 1 need or 1,000,000 needs depending on if the criteria is met.

I want to save the position of the need (DIV) automatically when it's moved. Is this possible?

Here the code I currently have that displays the "needs" (divs)



  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" />
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.2/jquery-ui.js"></script>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css" />
  #set div { width: 90px; height: 90px; padding: 0.5em; float: left; margin: 0 10px 10px 0; }
  #set { clear:both; float:left; width: 368px; height: 120px; }
  p { clear:both; margin:0; padding:1em 0; }

$(function() {
  $( "#set div" ).draggable({ 
    stack: "#set div"
