The jQuery UI consists of GUI widgets, visual effects, and themes implemented using jQuery, CSS, and HTML. jQuery UI is great for building UI interfaces for the webpages. The jQuery UI Draggable axis Option is used to dragging the element either on the horizontal (x) or vertical (y) axis. The possible values are “x” and “y”.

Syntax:

$( ".selector" ).draggable({
    axis: "x"
});

CDN Link: First, add jQuery UI scripts needed for your project.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css”>
<script src=”//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js”></script>
<script src=”//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.js”></script>

Example:

HTML




<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
"//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
    <script src=
"//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js">
    </script>
    <script src=
"//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.js">
    </script>
  
    <style>
        h1 {
            color: green;
        }
  
        #div_element {
            width: 150px;
            height: 150px;
            background: green;
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            align-items: center;
            text-align: center;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
  
    <h3>jQuery UI Draggable axis Option</h3>
  
    <div id="div_element">Div content</div>
  
    <script>
        $(function () {
            $("#div_element").draggable({
                axis: "x"
            });
        });
    </script>
