Toolbar dropdowns when dragging items

Description (last modified by nacin)

When dragging metaboxes, widgets, menu items, etc to the top of the window in order to scroll to drop the item on a portion of the UI that's above the viewing window, the toolbar interferes and produces dropdowns, etc.

If dragging an item, can we disable toolbar actions?

Attached. Sorry, had to open grab and do a timed screenshot. Kept dropping the menu item when I used shortcuts.

Sounds like a bug, but I can reproduce this in 3.2 as well.

I imagine this should be easy to do?

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from Admin menu dropdowns when dragging items to Toolbar dropdowns when dragging items

Updating "admin menu" to "toolbar" since "admin menu" refers to the left menu.

This tickets needs a new patch. The current patch only changes the post meta boxes, also the file against witch the patch was applied to doesn't exist any more.

The bug currently effects all the different places we have the drag and drop feature.
(menus, widgets and post-meta boxes but not galleries)

Since its a minor bug I would suggest fixing it once MP6 is released.

Definitely not the most elegant solution, but I figured I would take a stab and then work from there with people's feedback. This fixes the problem for widgets, post-meta boxes and menus; I'm pretty sure those are the only places it was an issue.

In a more ideal patch, we'd only add the draggable.start and draggable.stop triggers once, rather than every time we make something draggable. The current solution would leave room to reintroduce this bug the next time we add a draggable element.
