New version of my jQuery plugin jGD DropDown is here and it brings several new features, bug fixes and more examples for plugin use. There are more interesting features planned for future versions (including checkboxes for elements), but I don’t have too much time to work on it.
New version add several new settings (on plugin documentation page) that allow you to set title for the drop down when it’s displayed for the first time, and option to add additional class for the selected element in the drop down. There is a new option to copy class from selected element to top level selection title element. One of the new examples in displayed on the right, styles changed to add country flags for elements in the drop down.
Also, there are few more changes contributed by Weston Shaw from Avallo Multimedia and Creative Services: using existing class and style from select control to individual elements in the drop down. This will allow you to style SELECT you are converting to drop down and drop down will use it’s styling on own elements. He also proposed some other changes, and once that has been reviewed and cleared it will be included in next release.
New selected class can be used to hide element selected from the main list. Once you select another element, that one will be hidden, and previously hidden will appear. Check out examples to see that in action. For all examples, I added IE specific stylesheet file with some minor styling changes for IE browsers. You might not need that, depending on your own styles.
