Autoscroll when Sortable Widget is implemented on scrollable container
Using the Sortable Widget on a Grid works great to allow the user to manually sort the grid rows.  But if the grid has a vertical scrollbar, the  user has to drop the row multiple times to get a row from the top of the grid to the bottom.  It would be nice if the grid would Autoscroll when the user gets to bottom of the viewable grid.

Please ensure that the container continues to scroll even if the user is not generating mouse move events, while the drag item is being dragged out of the container boundary. 

Here is some code I implemented that does this. The container scrolls faster if the drag item is pulled farther away from the container boundary.

Just want to give vote on this. In my use case, lack of support for scrolling makes this control almost useless.

Hi folks. I'd definitely appreciate this kind of behaviour. We have sortable taking place in some items - with the overall document length being long enough that the user has to scroll to see everything. Not being able to drag items to any position in the list other than what's visible when dragging starts is problematic.

Has there been any movement on this? 
How many votes are required until something gets worked on?

Correct, this request will be taken into consideration when the sortable widget is used on any scrollable container, and not only the grid. Thanks for the additional feedback.

Same should apply in non grid mode? If I have a sortable in a div and drag to edge of page then it should continue to drag downward and scroll page. We have 100 items in a sortable and just noticed it doesn't allow you to put something from end to start without putting it in middle first and then scrolling page up
