@APourhadi

nice code, thnx alot for share it. one question:
often, u have a container div and many child div inside it, something like 'header','main', 'footer' and ...
is there a way to drag whole them (container and it's child) when drag one of them such as 'header' div ?

Not with this particular code I'm afraid, but it can be done.

This seems to work great. However, what the $.drags() did well was when dragging on a scaled div, the draggable div didn't expand. On this one it does while dragging. If that makes any sense.

@rajputvishal

how can I disable draggable.. i mean i want to enable it on click. and in the next click it should get disabled.

Target the header, and if the parent element is the entire div, then it will drag the entire div, but only drag if dragged from the header :P (wait, is this even English? Hopefully it can be understood XD)
