jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxListBox is used to illustrate a jQuery ListBox widget which comprises a list of electable elements.

The dragStart property is a callback function that is invoked whenever a drag action begins. It is of type Function and its by default value is null.


To set the dragStart property:

$("#jqxListBox").jqxListBox({dragStart: function (item)
    // disable dragging of 'item2' from listbox.
    if (item.label == 'item2')
    return false;
    // to enable dragging of item2 from listbox.
    return true;


To get the dragStart property:

var dragStart = $('#jqxListBox').jqxListBox('dragStart');
