jQuery UI Interaction : Draggable

Using jQuery UI draggable plugin , you can cause certain element draggable by mouse.

The element which are going to drag obtain a  'ui-draggable' class. This element obtain a 'ui-draggable-dragging'  class while dragging.

Also, if you want to drag and drop this element, you need to incorporate jQuery UI Droppable plugin, which provides a drop target for draggables.

All callbacks (start, stop, drag) receive two arguments: The original browser event and a prepared ui object, view below for a documentation of this object (if you name your second argument 'ui'):

  • ui.helper - the jQuery object representing the helper that's being dragged
  • ui.position - current position of the helper as { top, left } object, relative to the offset element
  • ui.offset - current absolute position of the helper as { top, left } object, relative to page
