The jQuery clearQueue() method removes all items from the queue that have not yet been run. Note that when a function has started to run, it runs until it is completed. 

Syntax:

$(selector).clearQueue(name);

Here “selector” is the selected element. 

Parameter: It accepts a parameter “name” which is the name of the function. 

jQuery examples to show the working of clearQueue() method:
Example 1: In the below code, animation method is cleared.
