Greetings List:

It's been a fair number of eons since I last posted a demo, so here goes...

Recently I was looking for an alternate way of reordering a list field using
a translucent drag-and-drop effect, similar to the Layers palette in Adobe
products.  "Get In Line" is the result of my experiments.  During the drag,
a translucent representation of the source text is dynamically created and
used along with an indicator to show where the text can be dropped.
Currently the demo only handles individual lines but with some tweaking
could probably accommodate multiple lines.  For folks looking to manage
lists, try this out to see if it works for you (only tested on Mac OS so far
-- Windows tests are appreciated).

To get the stack, run our stack player.  Enter in your message box:

Or go to the Download page:


See the script of the scrolling field for details.  Feel free to report any
problems for fixing.

Hope some folks find this useful.
