Nice job again Ancient Warrior. You beat me once again;)

Your demo is better than mine as it clearly shows that Draggable.create() creates an Array of multiple instances.


Here is another simple demo:



Bonus note: in addition to going into the Array  to find the draggable to enable / disable (which is easy with 1 or 2 instances) you can also use 

var myDraggable = Draggable.get("#someID");
var myDraggable = Draggable.get(element);

@Carl Thanks for pointing to Draggable.get() - much the easiest way in my case to find the instances to disable and re-enable. Still great advice two years on!
