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 Droppable accept option is used to control the draggable elements that are accepted by the droppable. It accepts a value as either Selector or Function().

Syntax:

$( ".selector" ).droppable({
  accept: ".special"
});

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 {
            color: white;
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            align-items: center;
            text-align: center;
        }
  
        #div2 {
            width: 150px;
            height: 150px;
            background: blue;
        }
  
        #div1 {
            position: absolute;
            left: 250px;
            width: 200px;
            height: 200px;
            background: green;
            color: #fff;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
  
    <h3>jQuery UI Droppable accept Option</h3>
  
    <div id="div1">Drop here</div>
