jQWidgets jqxSortable distance 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. The jqxSortable represents a jQuery plugin that allows you to reorder elements in an Html list or div tags using the mouse.

The distance property is used to set the distance after which the sorting should start. The sorting will not start for the specified value until after the mouse is dragged beyond the distance. It allows clicking on elements within a handle. It accepts number type values and its default value is 1.

Syntax:

  • It is used to set the distance property.
    $('Selector').jqxSortable({ distance : number });
  • It is used to return the distance property.
    var distance = $('Selector').jqxSortable('distance');
