jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxSortable represents a jQuery plugin that allows you to reorder elements in an HTML list or div tags using the mouse.

The appendTo property is used to define where the helper that moves with the mouse is being appended to during the drag. It accepts string type values and its default value is ‘parent’.

Syntax:

  • Set the appendTo property.
    $('Selector').jqxSortable({ appendTo : string });
  • Return the appendTo property.
    var appendTo = $('Selector').jqxSortable('appendTo');

Linked Files: Download jQWidgets from the given link. In the HTML file, locate the script files in the downloaded folder.

 <link type=”text/css” rel=”Stylesheet” href=”jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css” />
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”scripts/jquery-1.11.1.min.js”></script>
