LinkySelect is a jQuery plugin to replace the native select box that supports filtering, option headers, slide/fade animations and much more.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery Javascript library and the jQuery LinkySelect plugin's JS and CSS files in the Html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jQuery.LinkySelect.css">
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jQuery.LinkySelect-1.0.min.js"></script>

2. Create a standard select box and use data-type="header" attribute to specify the options headers.

<select>
  <option data-type="header">Header V</option>
  <option value="v1">v1</option>
  <option value="v2">v2</option>
  <option value="v3">v3</option>
  <option value="v4">v4</option>
  <option value="v5">v5</option>
  <option data-type="header">Header Z</option>
  <option value="z1">z1</option>
  <option value="z2">z2</option>
  <option value="z3">z3</option>
  <option value="z4">z4</option>
  <option value="z5">z5</option>
</select>

3. Call the plugin on the select box.

$('select').LinkySelect({
showFilter: true,
headerText: 'Select:',
emptyText: 'No result'
});

4. Customization options.

selectedValue: true, // Select the first option
showFilter: false, // Show a filter input field 
hideSelected: true, // Hide selected list item 
animation: 'slide', // 'slide', 'fade'
animationSpeed: 200 // Animation speed
preventSelection: true, // Disable text selection 
headerText: 'Select from the list:' // Header text 
emptyText: 'Not Found', // No result
onChange: null, // Callback
onFilter: null, // Callback
