#1205 closed bug (wontfix)

Position of Droppables within overflow:auto containers not calculated well!

The position of Droppables, that are placed within a container that has the css-property overflow:auto set, is not calculated well when the droppable area has been scrolled.

The reason is, that jQuery.iDrop.highlight() and jQuery.iDrop.remeasure() both use jQuery.iUtil.getPositionLite() which does not take into account scrolling-offsets.

Changing these function calls to getPosition() fixed the problem for me. However I know, that getPosition() is much slower than the lite-version.

So maybe a configuration variable should be Introduced, like script.aculo.us does: something like Position.includeScrollOffsets .
If set to true, the slow getPosition() method is used, which considers scrolling offsets.
If set to false (which should be default) the fast getPositionLite() is used.

Interface is no longer supported; consider switching to jQuery UI.
