jQuery Plugin To Select Multiple Elements with Mouse - nuSelectable

nuSelectable is a jQuery plugin which enables the visitor to select multiple DOM elements using mouse drag. The goal is to draw a box with your cursor to select a DOM element (or group of elements). Similar to the Google Drive file select.

How to use it:

1. Place the jQuery nuSelectable plugin after jQuery library but before the closing body tag.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/jquery.nu-selectable.js"></script>

2. Create a group of DOM elements to be selectable.

<div id="item-container">
  <div class="item">Item 1</div>
  <div class="item">Item 2</div>
  <div class="item">Item 3</div>

3. Enable the plugin by calling the function on the top container.

  items: '.item',
  selectionClass: 'nu-selection-box',
  selectedClass: 'nu-selected',
  autoRefresh: true

4. Style the selection box and selected elements in the CSS.

.nu-selection-box {

.nu-selected {

5. Callbacks.

onSelect: function() {},
onUnSelect: function() {},
onClear: function() {}
