Connecting jQuery UI dialogs with a line using JsPlumb


I am using jQuery plugin called jsPlumb - <a href="http://jsplumb.org/jquery/demo.html" rel="nofollow">http://jsplumb.org/jquery/demo.html</a> and I want to connect my jQuery UI Dialogs with lines generated by jsPlumb. But I cant figure out way to do it.

I have this source:

<div id="okenko1">Tuhle neco je</div> <div id="okenko2">Tuhle je neco jineho</div>

When I create dialog from this divs with jQuery UI


And then I do plumb:

jsPlumb.connect({source: $("#okenko1"), target: $("#okenko2")});

Its bugged :-D Looks like this <a href="http://prntscr.com/2udde" rel="nofollow">http://prntscr.com/2udde</a>

I tried to reverse the process, first plumb em and then use dialog, result is here <a href="http://prntscr.com/2udef" rel="nofollow">http://prntscr.com/2udef</a>:

Next I tried to plumb divs created by UI, it isnt working...

What can I do next? I really need to connect two elements on page with line, that will move when I move one of the elements, but I cant find anything better than jsPlumb.


I have made a small sample in jsfiddle: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/p8XUm/4/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/p8XUm/4/</a>


<span id="okenko1">Tuhle neco je</span> <span id="okenko2">Tuhle je neco jineho</span>


var d = $("#okenko1").dialog({drag: function(event, ui){ jsPlumb.repaint(d); }}).parent('.ui-dialog'); jsPlumb.connect({source: $("#okenko2"), target: d});

you should use the parent dialog element as plumb endpoint, not the div itself. d = $("#okenko1").parent(".ui-dialog")

More info about draggable endpoints can be found in the <a href="http://jsplumb.org/doc/content.html#dragAndDropExamples" rel="nofollow">documentation</a>

update: sample now works when dialog is moved!
