Jquery: Multi Column Select Box

This quick tutorial assumes that you already have jquery.js setup. Here are the instructions:

  1. Create a div with a table name the identify the div with a class “ex. datatable”
    <table cellspacing="0" width="100%">
  2. Include of course jquery.js and jquery.multicolselect.js
  3. Put this as javascript
  4. Note you need the “selectbutton.gif”. You can get a screenshot of the original Windows dropdown and then use Photoshop to crop it and save it as selectbutton.gif
  5. Then your done.

    Why no links to the plugin code or a demo??

    @redsquare, I haven’t found the time yet. I am still at work — I will probably come up with something when I’m at home. ;)

    But to give you an idea, it is just like a dropdown menu, but with 2 columns.

    UPDATE: I have updated the jquerymulticolselect.js to link to the JS file.
