jQuery Plugin To Convert Select List Into Selectable Boxes - Select Boxes

Select Boxes is a jQuery plugin which converts select options into singe- or multi-row selectable boxes with custom icons for easier item selection.

How to use it:

1. Download and include the jQuery select boxes plugin's CSS file in the head section of your html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="selectboxes.css">

2. Create a normal select list and specify the icons using the pwnicon attribute. In this case we're going to use Font Awesome 4 for item icons.

<select class="pwn-boxes">
  <option value="HTML5" pwnicon="fa fa-html5">Html5</option>
  <option value="CSS3" pwnicon="fa fa-css3">CSS3</option>
  <option value="Github" pwnicon="fa fa-github">Github</option>
  <option value="Linux" pwnicon="fa fa-linux">Linux</option>
  <option value="Google" pwnicon="fa fa-google">Google</option>
  <option value="Git" pwnicon="fa fa-git">Git</option>
</select>

3. Include jQuery library the jQuery select boxes plugin's JS file at the bottom of the html page.

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

4. Call the function to generate selectable boxes while hiding the regular select list.

// 2 row with each row 4 element
$('.pwn-boxes').pwnselectboxes({
  rows : 2
});

// single row
$('.pwn-boxe').pwnselectboxes({
  perrow: 8
});

5. Always show the regular select list.

$('.pwn-boxes').pwnselectboxes({
  rows : 2
  selecthide : false
});
