Damn. I was really hoping this would get fixed for 0.4.1. Who do I have to bribe in order to get this prioritized?

Is this the same issue as #1875 ? If so, you can temporarily patch your 0.4.x version. In src/dnd/HtmlDragManager.js -- cacheTargetLocations:

//   var bb = dojo.html.getBorderBox(tn);
var bb = { width: tn.scrollWidth, height: tn.scrollHeight };

You'll also have to change that line in dojo.js(.uncompressed.js) if you're using a build like kitchen sink.

Thanks a lot for the heads up. I haven't quite solved the problem though. Using scrollHeight as opposed to getBorderBox().height does solve the issue in Firefox, but it breaks IE. I'm also not sure it's the correct solution to the problem. Using getBorderBox() seems sane considering what we want is to know the top left point and the bottom right point of the target. I've done some digging around and I think the root of the problem is that dojo.html.getAbsolutePosition() does not take into account the scrolled height of the target node in Firefox. This results in the target box ending up all over the place vertically. In IE, it appears to work though.

If I apply this patch

and change

var scroll = dojo.html.getScroll();


var scroll = dojo.html.getScroll(node);

in dojo.html.getAbsolutePosition(), I get good results in both IE and Firefox. Here are two tests. The first one is a non-modified version of HEAD and the second one is HEAD but with the above changes applied.

It should be noted that Opera fails both tests. I have no idea how Safari performs.

I look forward to hearing what the devs have to say about this. I am in no way a Javascript developer, so for all I know, I could be completely wrong about this.
