[ACCEPTED]-What is disableSelection used for in jQuery UI?-jquery-ui
It's useful if you want to make text unselectable. If, for 5 instance, you want to make drag-and-drop 4 elements with text on, it'd be annoying 3 to the user if the text on the box accidentally 2 would get selected when trying to drag the 1 box.
.disableSelection() is actually harmful on some 2 browsers, as it prevents clicking active 1 elements (e.g.
textareas) inside the sortable.
- Firefox 33.1 for Mac OS X (Yosemite):
.disableSelection()prevents clicking on embedded
textarea; doesn't seem to have any effect otherwise (i.e. it is still impossible to select text with the mouse in the sortable if omitted)
- Chrome 39.0.2171.71 (64-bit) for Mac OS X:
.disableSelection()seems to have no effect whatsoever.
jQuery documentation says to not use it 2 http://api.jqueryui.com/disableselection/
Also, I found that it made elements with 1
contenteditable="true" no longer editable.
