An easy, flexible, searchable jQuery multi select plugin that allows the user to select one or multiple options from a dropdown list in a convenient way.

Features:

  • Works with the native <select> element.
  • Auto appends checkboxes to options.
  • Select All & Clear All controls.
  • Shows a search field to filter through options.
  • Allows you to determine the maximum number of options allowed to select.

How to use it:

1. Insert the stylesheet easySelectStyle.css and JavaScript easySelect.js into the page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="easySelectStyle.css">
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="easySelect.js"></script>

2. Just call the function easySelect on the target <select> element and the plugin will do the rest.

<select id="demo" multiple="multiple">
  <option value="Lightblue">Lightblue</option>
  <option value="Green">Green</option>
  <option value="Yellow">Yellow</option>
  <option value="Blue Samoa">Blue</option>
  <option value="Pink">Pink</option>
  <option value="Black">Black</option>
  <option value="Orange">Orange</option>
</select>
$("#demo").easySelect({
  // options here
})

3. Determine the maximum number of options allowed to select at a time.

<select id="demo" data-max="5" multiple="multiple">
  <option value="Lightblue">Lightblue</option>
  <option value="Green">Green</option>
  <option value="Yellow">Yellow</option>
  <option value="Blue Samoa">Blue</option>
  <option value="Pink">Pink</option>
  <option value="Black">Black</option>
  <option value="Orange">Orange</option>
</select>

4. Determine whether to show Select All & Clear All controls on the top of the multi select component. Default: false.

$("#demo").easySelect({
  buttons: true
})

5. Determine whether to show a search field on the top of the multi select component. Default: false.

$("#demo").easySelect({
  search: true
})

6. Customize the appearance of the multi select component.

$("#demo").easySelect({

  // placeholder text
  placeholder: 'Select item',

  // color of selected options
  selectColor: '#414c52',

  // color of placeholder text
  placeholderColor: '#838383',

  // title of selected options
  itemTitle: 'Selected items',

  // shows values
  showEachItem: false,

  // width
  width: '100%',

  // max height
  dropdownMaxHeight: 'auto'
  
})
