Selectator is a tiny jQuery plugin that helps you style and enhances the default select boxes with more advanced features as introduced below.

Features:

  • Custom options images and badges.
  • Fetches remote option data via AJAX.
  • Live search.
  • Supports both single and multiple selection.
  • Callback functions.
  • Easy to customize using your own styles.

How to use it:

1. Link to jQuery library and the jQuery Selectator plugin's files:

<link href="fm.selectator.jquery.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script src="fm.selectator.jquery.js"></script> 

2. Create a normal select box and specify the images, badges, and sub titles using the following data attributes.

  • data-subtitle: subtile below the option
  • data-left: left image
  • data-right: right badge
<select id="basic" name="select">
  <option value="">&nbsp;</option>
  <option value="1" data-subtitle="The first option" data-left="1.png" data-right="1" selected>One</option>
  <option value="2" data-subtitle="The second option" data-left="2.png" data-right="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3" data-subtitle="The third option" data-left="3.png" data-right="3">Three</option>
  ...
</select>

3. Initialize the jQuery Selectator plugin with JavaScript.

$('#basic').selectator();

4. You can also initialize the plugin with inline markup as these.

<select multiple 
        class="selectator" 
        data-selectator-keep-open="true" 
        data-MORE-OPTION="OPTION VALUE">
  <option value="">&nbsp;</option>
  <option value="1" data-subtitle="The first option" data-left="1.png" data-right="1" selected>One</option>
  <option value="2" data-subtitle="The second option" data-left="2.png" data-right="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3" data-subtitle="The third option" data-left="3.png" data-right="3">Three</option>
  ...
</select>

5. All possible plugin options.

$('#basic').selectator({
