Drag and Droppable panels offsets
Hi guys, just wondering if you could point me in the right direction here-
I've got a panel that has drag and drop panels added to it on the press of a button, which works fine, but I'd like to be able to measure the distance between to selected panels to draw a line between them on a layered canvas element.
What I'm wondering is how to get the panel's offsets from their origin. Whenever top or left is queried, 0 is returned, and trying to access the offsetLeft offsetTop HTML attributes, they're also always 0. What should I be accessing to find out where they've moved to in screen coordinates?
Thanks in advance!

I haven't, but I'll try that now. For now I got around it by taking the webkit transform property from the css, splitting that up and taking the offsets and using those values. Hopefully getXY works better than my dodgy little hack workaround.
