How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery javascript library from a CDN.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.js"></script>

3. Put your form elements in an extra DIV element with CSS class of 'control'. All the form elements needs at least an 'id' to be replaced.

<div class="control">
  <input id="demo1" name="group_input1" type="checkbox" class="demo" value="ex1">
  <label for="demo1">Element Label 1</label>
<div class="control">
  <input id="demo2" name="group_input2" type="checkbox" class="demo" value="ex2">
  <label for="demo2">Element Label 2</label>
<div class="control">
  <input id="demo3" name="group_input3" type="checkbox" class="demo" value="ex2">
  <label for="demo3">Element Label 3</label>

4. Initialize the plugin and you're done.

// Adds one or more additional css classes to the replacement element.
additionalClass: null, 

// A callback function; will be thrown on value change.
onChange: null,

// Set css style options to the original element.
inputCss: {
  position: "absolute",
