jQuery Plugin For Text Field Float Label - floatlabels.js

floatlabels.js is a jQuery plugin to create an animated text label floating within the input text field when the user starts typing, inspired by Matt D. Smith's float label concept. By default, the plug will use the placeholder attribute as the label text, you can custom the text and style by using data-label and data-class attributes.

<input type="text" class="demo" placeholder="User Name" data-label="Your User Name" data-class="red-label" />

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="floatlabels.js"></script>

3. Initialize the plugin.

$(document).ready(function () {

4. Available configurations.


  // slide down (height) to fit the floating label.
  slideInput      : true, 

  // How many pixel the label should travel.
  labelStartTop   : '20px', 

  // Where the Label should stop animating in px from the top of the input field.
  labelEndTop     : '10px', 

  paddingOffset                   : '12px',

  // Label Transition time in seconds.
