Ajax Drag and Drop
I'm looking to potentially implement some drag and drop functionality to my website. Property owners can add and delete images related to their villa rental property listing. They can select one image as a lead image which is the image that appears in search listings on tnhe site. I would like to use Ajax to allow ordering of the images using drag and drop and also just clicking on an image to make it th lead without having to click the form checkbox then press update.
Question i have is:
2.Could i use jquery to do this?
3. If i was to contract in someone to do it does this feel like a complicated piece of work or is it pretty straightforward for someone with the right skillset and if so is this a small piece of work?
jQuery would make that easy to do. jQuery UI actually provides sortable functionality: http://jqueryui.com/demos/sortable/
Using that sortable feature from jQuery UI you can supply a change callback that will then use $.post or some other jQuery AJAX method to submit the data to your backend.
You can use jQuery's click event to setup the ajax to save the default image.
This kind of thing is exactly what i want:
How easy is jQuery to learn, understand and implement?
jQuery is amazingly simple to learn and use, and once you start using it you will see so many applications for it on your sites. I've been using it for some time and still get a buzz when I do what is for jQuery a simple thing that would have normally taken 100's of lines of code to do long hand...
