Looking for a draggable checkbox list control for HTML/JQuery

Go To StackoverFlow.com


I was wondering if there's a JQuery control to do the following?

Have a list of check boxes that a user, besides checking and unchecking, can drag around to change their order.

It would be pretty simple and straightforward to do this with jQuery UI's sortable method - Colin Brock 2012-04-04 02:32

You could do this pretty easily using jQuery UI's sortable method.

Here is a very basic example to get you started, using the demo found in the above link, with some checkboxes added.
