jQWidgets jqxSortable containment Property

  • Last Updated : 14 Nov, 2021

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 containment property is used to define a bounding box that the sortable items are constrained while dragging. It accepts boolean/string type values and its default value is false.

Syntax:

  • Set the containment property:

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

     

  • Return the containment property:

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

Linked Files: Download jQWidgets from the given link. In the HTML file, locate the script files in the downloaded folder:

<link type=”text/css” rel=”stylesheet” href=”jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css” />
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”scripts/jquery-1.11.1.min.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”jqwidgets/jqxcore.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”jqwidgets/globalization/globalize.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”jqwidgets/jqxsortable.js”></script>
