Drag and drop on Rendered buttons in Grid?

Hi, I am trying to implement drag and drop on a rendered button in a Grid. I want to be able to drag the button out of the Grid and onto a panel or horizontal layout. Switching to a Table is not a solution for me because it would require a lot of rewiring of the code and that is not a viable solution at this stage of my project. I tried to use jQuery however, even though the buttons seem to be inheriting the proper jQuery classes, there is no drag and drop functionality. What can I do to make drag and drop work?
