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

The jQuery UI Selectable disabled option is used to disable the selectable elements when it is set to “true“.

Syntax:

  • Initialize selectable element with disabled option:

    $(".selector").selectable({
       disabled: Boolean
    });

     

  • Set or return disabled option after initialization:

    // Set the disabled option
    $( ".selector" ).selectable( "option", "disabled", Boolean );
    
    // Return the disabled option
    var disabled = $( ".selector" ).selectable( "option", "disabled" );

CDN Link: First, add jQuery UI scripts needed for your project.

<script src=”https/code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js”></script>
<script src=”https/code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.js”></script>
