    We're using the Sortable widget to connect two grids, and this works as expected as long as both grids have data. However, if the drop target's grid is empty, we've found that it is impossible to drop any rows there. connectWith in the Sortable constructor is being set to: "#gridName table".

    Is this an expected limitation? Is there any workaround?

    Hello Nicholas,

    The behavior is expected and occurs because the after Grid is left with no records its table becomes hidden (with zero height). As a result the user cannot hover the sortable container with the mouse, respectively cannot activate the sortable widget.

    As a possible solution I suggest to add an empty row to the Grid's table which indicates that there are no records left. In this way the table will expand and the user will be able to hover it with the mouse.
