This script.aculo.us Drag & Drop accept Option is used to create an active accept condition where you can drag a draggable element to a drop area. In that drop area, the element will be placed if the accept class is the same as the class of your draggable element.

Syntax:

Droppables.add('element', {accept: 'cssClass'});

Example: In this example, both the image are draggable but drop area will only accept where the image tag class is ‘gfg’.
