Animated Dual Multi Select Plugin With jQuery - Parts Selector

Parts Selector is a simple, animated dual list box plugin for jQuery that allows to move list items between 2 list boxes side by side. This plugin uses finderSelect, which is a jQuery plugin that activates selecting elements within a parent with Ctrl+Click, Command+Click, and Shift+Click.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery Parts Selector's style sheet parts-selector.css on the html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="parts-selector.css">

2. Create the html for the dual list box.

<div class="parts-selector" id="parts-selector-1">
  <div class="parts list">
    <h3 class="list-heading">Available items</h3>
  <div class="controls">
    <a class="moveto selected"><span class="icon"></span><span class="text">Add</span></a>
    <a class="moveto parts"><span class="icon"></span><span class="text">Remove</span></a>
  <div class="selected list">
    <h3 class="list-heading">Chosen items</h3>

3. Include jQuery library and the jQuery Parts Selector's JavaScript parts-selector.js right before the closing body tag.

<script src="" 
<script src="parts-selector.js"></script>

4. Initialize the dual list box on document ready. Done.

$(function() {
  $( "#parts-selector-1" ).partsSelector();

5. Possible plugin option to customize the dual list box

$( "#parts-selector-1" ).partsSelector({
  selectClass: "selected",
  unSelectClass: "un-selected",
  currentClass: "selected-current",
  lastClass: "selected-last",
  shiftClass: "selected-shift",
  ctrlClass: "selected-ctrl",
  triggerUpdate: "finderSelectUpdate",
  children: false,
  event: "mousedown",
  cursor: "pointer",
  dragEvent: "mouseenter",
  enableClickDrag: true,
