Hi, I have 3 divs that are related. I want that when the user drags one of this items the other 2 are drag automatically (so the user can see that they are being dragged too!). How can I do this???? There's no onDrag event to do it by java code....


EDIT: I use the code provided by Cor3000 and it works fine. To continue using the default drag for all the divs that havn't got the data-related attribute use the following code:

var superdiv = {}; 
    zk.override(zul.wgt.Div.prototype, superdiv, { 
        cloneDrag_: function (drag, ofs) {
            if(drag.node.dataset.related == undefined || drag.node.dataset.related == ''){
                return superdiv.cloneDrag_.apply(this,arguments);
                var dragContainer = document.createElement("div");

                dragContainer.style.position = 'absolute';
                //dragContainer.innerText = 'Dragging related nodes'; /*e.g. add a text*/
                jq('[data-related=' + drag.node.dataset.related + ']').each(function(index, related) {
                    var comp  = related.cloneNode(true);
                        comp.style.marginLeft = '100px';

                return dragContainer;

Hi Neus.

since drag and drop initially happens on the client side you can override a number of client side functions to customize this behavior (http://books.zkoss.org/wiki/ZKClient-sideReference/Customization/Drag-and-Drop_Effects)

I created a small example to show the basic principle http://zkfiddle.org/sample/1rbom3p/1-custom-drag-and-drop

It uses data-attributes to identify related divs to clone them into the same dragContainer. But any mechanism will work.

I use the client/attribute namespace to set the data attributes. To assign these values from java you can use setClientDataAttribute (or in ZK <=7 setWidgetAttribute)

Hi I still have some problems with this. See the new text on my post... Thank you!

Ok...it's missing the return before the line superdiv.cloneDrag_.apply(this,arguments);. Now it works
