jQuery UI consists of GUI widgets, visual effects, and themes implemented using HTML, CSS, and jQuery. jQuery UI is great for building UI interfaces for the webpages. The jQuery UI Sortable cancel option is used to prevent the sorting if you start on elements matching the selector.

Syntax:

$( ".selector" ).sortable({
  cancel: "elements"
});

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/base/jquery-ui.css">
    </script>
    </script>
      
    <style>
        #sortable {
            list-style-type: none;
            width: 50%;
        }
  
        #sortable li {
            margin: 10px 0;
            padding: 0.5em;
            font-size: 25px;
            height: 20px;
        }
    </style>
  
    <script>
        $(function () {
            $("#sortable").sortable({
                cancel: 'li'
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
        <h1 style="color: green;">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
  
        <h4>jQuery UI Sortable cancel Option</h4>
  
        <ul id="sortable">
            <li class="ui-state-default">BCD</li>
            <li class="ui-state-default">CAB</li>
            <li class="ui-state-default">BAC</li>
            <li class="ui-state-default">BCA</li>
            <li class="ui-state-default">ABC</li>
        </ul>
    </center>
