How to get id of destination list when using connectToSortable

BrentNJ asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I want to disable a source list item when dragged to another list. Using the stop event works ok accept if we accidentally drop the item into itself, then it also becomes disabled.

Would like to check the target list id first, then disable the source element.

This does not work because it references the source list. How do I reference the id of the destination list?

ba is source, aa is destination


    connectToSortable: '#aa',
    helper: 'clone',
    revert: 'invalid',
    stop: function(event, ui){
      if ($(this).parent().attr('id')=='bs') {
      $(this).draggable({disabled: true}).addClass('done');
