move impossible with user-provided creator function

When user provides their own creator(item, hint) function to the constructor of dojo.dnd.Source, it is impossible to implement the move between distinct Sources.

The default creator accomplishes the move operation by deleting the nodes from the original Source. However, user creator function does not have the necessary information (the original Source and whether the operation is copy or move) to do so. Anyway, deleting items is not what one would expect to be done by the creator function.

To fix this, when move is required, I would suggest to either delete the items from somewhere else than in the default creator or wrap the user provided creator by one that also deletes the items from the original Source.

I don't understand what the problem is. Does dojo/tests/dnd/flickr_viewer.html work for you? It uses creator functions. If you mean something different please attach a test case which shows the problem.

Sorry, my mistake. I didn't actually try it, I only looked at the source, what would happen. I thought that items were only deleted by source.delItem(; in the default creator. But, when the creator is provided,

if(!copy && this.creator){

does the job.

Just a final note: I experienced a problem when I wanted to implement a "trash" -- items dropped on trash would just disappear. I used the default creator for it and overrode insertNodes() to do nothing. This didn't work, because the items didn't get deleted from the original source (which was supposed to be done in the default creator, but in the overriden insertNodes() it never got called). I assumed that this won't work even when I provide my own (dummy) creator, but it works because of that

if(!copy && this.creator){
