This code will give me the widget ID if the widget is moved at all after the initial placement.


On the first drop it is undefined as I suspect that the DOM has not been rebuilt. This is when I need it. In the end I need some javascript to fire when a widget is newly created and I need the specific widget ID for form manipulation. This isn't a new request...seen it before. Never a complete solution.
