I have multiple elements in a container and I am using draggable to be able to drag them, after spending a lot of time I came to realize that in draggable using 'this' doesn't let you access target element using jQuery or TweenMax. So how can I access the element that is being dragged? I have attached a simple codepen where I am trying to set padding on target element, I tried many different properties but no changes.

Try using this.target instead:

TweenMax.set(this.target, {padding: 100});
