Tiny On / Off Switch Button Plugin For jQuery - easyswitch

easyswitch is a lightweight jQuery plugin which converts a container element (div or span) into a clean, easy-to-style on / off toggle switch. All the selected data will be stored in the hidden input files created automatically by the plugin.

How to use it:

1. You need to make sure jQuery and jquery.easyswitch.js are loaded correctly in the document.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.easyswitch.js"></script>

2. Create an element with the CSS class of 'easyswitch' for the toggle switch.

<span class="easyswitch"></span>

3. Initialize the plugin with default options.


4. Style the toggle switch using your own CSS.

.easyswitch {
  width: 80px;
  height: 22px;
  font-size: 12px;
  display: inline-block;
  position: relative;
  cursor: pointer;
  border: 1px solid #666;
  border-radius: 3px;
  -moz-border-radius: 3px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 3px;

.easyswitch .easyswitch-label {
  width: 40px;
  height: 22px;
  line-height: 22px;
  float: left;
  margin: 0;
  font-family: Arial, 宋体;
  text-align: center;

.easyswitch .easyswitch-slider {
  width: 37px;
  height: 18px;
  position: absolute;
  top: 1px;
  border: 1px solid #999;
  border-radius: 3px;
  background: #fff;
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #ececec 0%, #ffffff 100%);
  background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%, #ececec), color-stop(100%, #ffffff));
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #ececec 0%, #ffffff 100%);
  background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #ececec 0%, #ffffff 100%);
  background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #ececec 0%, #ffffff 100%);
  background: linear-gradient(top, #ececec 0%, #ffffff 100%);
  box-shadow: inset 0px 1px 0px 0px rgba(255,255,255,0.5);

.easyswitch.on {
  background-color: #333;
  color: #fff;

.easyswitch.off {
  background-color: #efefef;
  color: #333;

5. You're able to pass the options (e.g. label text, check state, etc) via data-option attribute directly on the container element.

<span class="easyswitch" 

6. Plugin's default options.


  // custom text
  'label-on' : 'ON',
  'label-off' : 'OFF',

  // name of hidden input field
  'name' : 'easyswitch',

  // 1 or 0
  'default' : 0, 

  // callback function
  'callback' : '', 

  // CSS classes
  'class-on' : 'on', 
  'class-off' : 'off',
  'class-slider' : 'easyswitch-slider',
  'class-label' : 'easyswitch-label'
