Can anyone tell me that if I create a drag and drop on a form, say, a list that can be rearranged, or whatever, if the arrangement of the drag and drop is stored in a single field or multiple fields in a database ?
I think each form object needs a field and the position coordinates are stored in the database field. But, heck, I could be way way way off.
Any of you pros know how it works in a simple overview of it?
I can get the drag and drop part down, but, storing the positions and later on bringing them back up in the rearranged state is a bugger...

You can store it however you wish. One way is to use separate columns for each field property (name, type, top, left, height, width, tabindex, etc.) Another is to store an XML file in a single column and parse it to extract the desired info.
