I've used jquery-ui draggable option as following but the moving popup can not be ended once dragging has started. Is there any another method to make OpenLayers.Popup draggable?

popup = new OpenLayers.Popup.AnchoredBubble(
                "JInfo",                                            // id
                 jFeature.geometry.getBounds().getCenterLonLat(),  // lonlat
                 new OpenLayers.Size(ISA.Size.POPUP_WIDTH, ISA.Size.POPUP_HEIGHT),
                 html,                                           // contentHTML
                 null,                                           // anchor
                 true,                                           // closeBox
                 function(){                                    // closeBoxCallback
jFeature.popup = popup;    

Thanks advance for your helps,

An OL extension has been coded for that.

You will find a blog post relative to the draggable behavior and the extension implementation : http://aamirafridi.com/openlayers/openlayers-draggable-popups

With a link to the demo : http://jsbin.com/agopa3

The extension full code is available on the blog page. Hope it helps.
