jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful and optimized framework, platform-independent, and widely supported. jqxSortable represents a jQuery plugin which allows you to reorder elements in a html list or div tags using the mouse.

The connectWith property is used to make a selector that is used to connect other lists. It accepts boolean/string type values and its default value is true.


  • Set the connectWith property:

    $('jqxSortable').jqxSortable({ connectWith : boolean/string });

  • Return the connectWith property:

    var connectWith = $('Selector').jqxSortable('connectWith');
