Option Description
axis Constrains dragging to either x or y axis
containment Constrains dragging to within the bounds of the specified element or region
cursor The CSS style of the cursor during the drag operation
opacity opacity during the drag operation
revert Boolean property that specifies if the element should revert to its start position when dragging stops
revertDuration The duration of the revert animation, in milliseconds
snap Specifies whether the element being dragged should snap to other elements. Value can be boolean or a selector. When set to true, the element will snap to all other draggable elements. When a selector is specified the element being dragged will snap to the element specified by the selector
snapTolerance The distance in pixels between the element being dragged and the element to which to snap to, at which snapping should occur
cancel Prevents dragging from starting on specified elements

Constrains dragging to within the bounds of the parent element
<div id="containerDiv" style="height: 300px; width: 300px; border: 3px solid black">
    <div id="draggableDiv" class="divClass">
        Drag me around

    containment : 'parent'

Changes the cursor style to "move" during the drag operation
    cursor: 'move'

Changes the opacity to 0.3 during the drag operation
    opacity : 0.3
