      <option value="1">Item 1</option>
      <option value="2">Item 2</option>
      <option value="3">Item 3</option>
      <option value="4">Item 4</option>
      <option value="5">Item 5</option>
    </select>
  </div>
  <div class="move-panel">
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-all-right btn-primary"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-selected-right"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-all-left"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-selected-left"></button>
  </div>
  <div class="to-panel">
    <select name="to[]" class="form-control" size="8" multiple="multiple">
      <option value="6">Item 6</option>
      <option value="7">Item 7</option>
      <option value="8">Item 8</option>
    </select>
  </div>
  <div class="control-panel">
    <button type="button" class="btn-delete"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-up"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-down"></button>
  </div>
</div>

3. Call the function on the top container to create a simple dual list box.

$(function(){

  $(".jp-multiselect").jQueryMultiSelection();

});

<div id="dynamic-form" class="jp-multiselect">
  <div class="from-panel">
    <select name="from[]" class="form-control" size="8" multiple="multiple"></select>
  </div>
  <div class="move-panel">
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-all-right"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-selected-right"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-all-left"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-move-selected-left"></button>
  </div>
  <div class="to-panel">
    <select name="to[]" class="form-control" size="8" multiple="multiple"></select>
  </div>
  <div class="control-panel">
    <button type="button" class="btn-delete"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-up"></button>
    <button type="button" class="btn-down"></button>
  </div>
  <p><button id="btn-ajax">Get List</button></p>
</div>
$("#dynamic-form").jQueryMultiSelection({
  enableDynamicAddContent : true,
  ajaxSourceUrl           : "data.json",
  btnGetJson              : "#btn-ajax"
});

5. Customize the control buttons.

$(".jp-multiselect").jQueryMultiSelection({
  btnMoveAllRight         : ".btn-move-all-right",
  btnMoveSelectedRight    : ".btn-move-selected-right",
  btnMoveAllLeft          : ".btn-move-all-left",
  btnMoveSelectedLeft     : ".btn-move-selected-left",
  btnDelete               : ".btn-delete",
  btnMoveUp               : ".btn-up",
  btnMoveDown             : ".btn-down",
  
  htmlMoveAllRight        : "&rsaquo;&rsaquo;",
  htmlMoveSelectedRight   : "&rsaquo;",
  htmlMoveAllLeft         : "&lsaquo;&lsaquo;",
  htmlMoveSelectedLeft    : "&lsaquo;",
  htmlDelete              : "Delete",
  htmlMoveUp              : "Up",
