jQuery Plugin To Create Increment / Decrement Input Spinners - handleCounter

handleCounter is a simple plain jQuery input spinner plugin which enables plus and minus buttons to increment and decrement the input's numeric value.

How to use it:

1. The primary html structure for the input spinner.

<div class="handle-counter" id="handleCounter">
  <button class="counter-minus btn btn-primary">-</button>
  <input type="text" value="3">
  <button class="counter-plus btn btn-primary">+</button>

2. Style the input spinner with the following CSS snippets:

.handle-counter { overflow: hidden; }

  float: left;
  text-align: center;

.handle-counter .counter-minus,  .handle-counter .counter-plus { text-align: center; }

.handle-counter input {
  width: 50px;
  border-width: 1px;
  border-left: none;
  border-right: none;

.btn {
  padding: 6px 12px;
  border: 1px solid transparent;
  color: #fff;

.btn:disabled, .btn:disabled:hover {
  background-color: darkgrey;
  cursor: not-allowed;

.btn-primary { background-color: #009dda; }

.btn-primary:hover, .btn-primary:focus { background-color: #0486b9; }
