jQuery Plugin For Google Plus Like Hover Drop Down Box

Hover Drop Down Box is a jQuery plugin for creating a button that slides out a drop down box when hovers over it, similar to the google plus +1 follow button.

How to use it:

1. Include the latest jQuery javasript library from google CDN

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

2. Include jQuery Hover Drop Down Box on your web page

<script src="jquery-hover-dropdown-box.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery-hover-dropdown-box.css" />

3. Create a follow button

<span id="example_follow_btn">Follow</span> 

4. The javascript

<script type="text/javascript">
title: 'Follow',
items: {
"List A": {
color: "#e74c3c",
inputType: "checkbox",
inputSelected: true
"List B": {
color: "#f1c40f", 
inputType: "checkbox",
inputSelected: false
"List C": {
color: "#2ecc71",
inputType: "checkbox",
inputSelected: false
"List D": {
color: "#3498db",
inputType: "checkbox",
inputSelected: false
"List E": {
color: "#7f8c8d",
inputType: "checkbox",
inputSelected: false
onClick: function(key, item, dom){
window.alert("onClick: " + key + " - " + item.checked() );
onLabelClick: function(key, item, dom){
item.checked( !item.checked() );
window.alert("onLabelClick: " + key + " - " + item.checked() );
