  • Last Updated : 25 Jan, 2022

jQuery UI  is a web-based technology and consists of GUI widgets, visual effects, and themes implemented using the jQuery, JavaScript Library. jQuery UI is the best tool for building UI interfaces for the webpages. It can also be used to build highly interactive web applications or can be used to add widgets easily.

In this article, we will learn how to use the jQuery UI Draggable connectToSortable Option. This option allows the draggable to be dropped onto the specified sortable. A draggable can be dropped onto a sortable list and then becomes part of it. The default value of this option is false.

Syntax:

The connectToSortable option takes a Selector type value and the syntax is as follows.

draggable({
 connectToSortable: "#my-sortable"
});
  • Get the connectToSortable option

    var connectToSortable = $( ".selector" )
    .draggable( "option", "connectToSortable" );
  • Set the connectToSortable option

    $( ".selector" ).draggable( "option", "connectToSortable", 
                                "#my-sortable" );
