multiPicker is a tiny jQuery plugin to create a generic picker interface which enables you to select multiple elements like a range picker.

How to use it:

1. Load the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery multiPicker plugin's files in the html document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="multipicker.css"></script>

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script src="multipicker.js"></script>

2. The HTML to create a basic date range picker.

<ul id="checklist" class="checklist">
  <li data-value="Sunday">Su</li>
  <li data-value="Monday">Mo</li>
  <li data-value="Tuesday">Tu</li>
  <li data-value="Wednesday">We</li>
  <li data-value="Thursday">Th</li>
  <li data-value="Friday">Fr</li>
  <li data-value="Saturday">Sa</li>
</ul>

<input type="hidden" name="multi-picker" value="">

3. Initialize the picker plugin.

$("#checklist").multiPicker({

  // input name
  inputName: "multi-picker",// default 

  // text, index, or html attribute, default index
  valueSource: "text",        

  // array or single value
  prePopulate: ["Tu"],  

  // is a single picker?
  isSingle: false,  

  // callbacks   
  onInit: function() {
    // do something
  },

  onSelect: function(item, value) {
    // do something
  },

  onUnselect: function(item, value) {
    // do something
  }
  
});
