javascript drag and drop where user chooses which objects are present?

Posted 24 August 2011 - 12:34 PM

Hi All

There is a website based game I would like to build, but I am not sure that the main functionality would be possible to program. I have tried to do as much research as possible. I know that javascript can do drag and drop, but would it be possible for the user to specify which images (out of a catalogue of thousands) they would like to be present on screen/toplay with?

It would need to work like this: The user is presented with a catalgoue of images. They can refine this catalogue according to things like colour, type etc. The user chooses which images they would like to play with by adding them to their personal choices (e.g. with an 'add this item' button). In the next step the user is taken to a page showing all the items added to their personal list, which they can then drag and drop around the screen. The user can then save/share their 'creation'.

Thanks so much for your time. I have been working hard on this project and I really don't know who to ask.

Moved to Javascript, since Java != Javascript.

jQuery has a UI that is capable of doing just that.

Hello

Thanks for that, very helpful.

If you were building the above site, would you use flash or jquery?

I have been looking at Polyvore.com as it has a similar function http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/app

Thanks

I would use jQuery since it's Javascript. Flash is soon going to be a thing of the past as soon as HTML5 get's on full swing.
