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 dropOnEmpty property is used to enable or disable if the sortable can be dragged at empty or not. It accepts boolean type values and its default value is true.

Syntax:

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