I am in the middle of a rails based warehouse management system and am
looking to implement a graphical layout designer.
My idea is that you would be able to drag warehouse elements such as
racks (represented by various html elements) around the screen and then
save the placement for future use.
I have the plumbing in place the allow draggable elements however I need
some pointers with regard to obtaining the elements screen pixel
position, either relative to the containing div or the entire screen.
couple of pointers to give me a direction to work towards.
