DuplicateElement is an ultra-light jQuery plugin that dynamically adds duplicate form fields with add/remove buttons to your existing form control.

How to use it:

1. Download and load the jQuery DuplicateElement plugin after jQuery JavaScript library.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="jscripts/duplicateFields.min.js"></script>

2. Create a form with fields or groups of fields which can be dynamicaly added and removed as needed.

<fieldset id="additional-field-model">
  <div class="form-group">
    <div class="col-md-6 col-sm-12">
      <label class="col-md-12 control-label" for="field-a">Field A</label>
      <div class="input-group">
        <select id="field-a" name="field-a"   class="form-control input-md"  required="">
          <option disabled="" selected="">Select ...</option>
          <option>Option A</option>
          <option>Option B</option>
          <option>Option C</option>
          <option>Option D</option>
        </select>
        <span class="input-group-addon"> Help text</span> </div>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-2 col-xs-5">
      <label class="col-md-12 control-label" for="field-b">Field A</label>
      <div class="input-group">
        <input id="field-b" name="field-b" type="text" placeholder="field b" class="form-control input-md" value="" required>
      </div>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-4 col-xs-7 text-right">
      <label class="col-xs-12 control-label" for="field-c"><br />
      </label>
      <a href="javascript:void(0);" class="btn btn-warning remove-this-field"> 
        <span class="hidden-xs"> Delete </span> </a> 
      <a href="javascript:void(0);" class="btn btn-success create-new-field"> 
        <span class="hidden-xs"> Duplicate </span> 
      </a> 
    </div>
  </div>
</fieldset>

3. Call the plugin and specify the CSS classes for the add/remove buttons.

$('#additional-field-model').duplicateElement({
  "class_remove": ".remove-this-field",
  "class_create": ".create-new-field"
});

4. Set up the default options.

$('#additional-field-model').duplicateElement({
tag_name: 'div',
tag_id: "dinamic-fields",
clone_model: "#clone-field-model",
class_remove: ".remove-this-fields",
class_create: ".create-new-fields",
onCreate: "",
onRemove: ""
});
