Draggable ghost element

I'm using GSAP's Draggable, and I noticed that while the users starts dragging, a hidden ghost div is appended to the div which contains the dragging element.

This is what is looks like:

<div style="visibility: hidden; height: 1px; top: -1px; pointer-events: none; position: relative; clear: both; width: 585px;"></div>

Is this necassary? Can I eliminate this div OR eliminate it's width (because it widens the container div incorrectly) ?

That should actually only be implemented if you enable autoScroll, but there was a regression in a recent version that could cause it to show up in other situations. Sorry about that. It is indeed necessary to prop open the container when you're dragging something inside a scrollable container. It should be resolved in the upcoming release which you can preview (uncompressed) at https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/16327/Draggable-latest-beta.js


Does that work better for you? It was tough for me to verify in your case because you didn't provide a codepen or jsfiddle example. If you're still having trouble, that'd be super helpful (a reduced test case codepen).

Hi Jack,


Thanks for the quick reply, didn't expect on the weekend, sorry if I disturbed you.


I decided to avoid the 'autoScroll' option at the moment, it isn't quite necassary for me at the moment, and things seem to work well now,


Thanks again,
