In this video we will discuss jQuery droppable widget

Let us understand jQuery droppable widget with an example. 
jquery droppable widget

1. From the first box, we want to be able to drag and drop countries on to Countries box, and cities on to Cities box
2. If I try to drop a country on to the City box, or a city on to the Country box, it should not be allowed and the element should revert to it's original position

To achieve this we are going to make use of both draggable and droppable widgets
