Nice Clear Dropdown List with jQuery and CSS - stb-dropdown

stb-dropdown is a very small jQuery plugin for converting your regular select box into a nice, clean dropdown list that is fully styleable via CSS.

Basic usage:

1. Load the stb.dropdown.min.css in the header for default dropdown styles.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="stb.dropdown.min.css">

2. Add jQuery library and the jQuery stb-dropdown plugin's script at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="stb.dropdown.min.js"></script> 

3. Call the function on the select element and done.


4. Modify or override the default CSS rules to create your own styles.
