HTML SELECT to jQuery Spinner?
Posted on 2012-04-02
I'd like to interface my ASP.NET dropdownlist controls (which render as HTML SELECTs) a different way: like a numeric spinner, or "updown" control.
You know, where you have up/down arrow buttons or arrow buttons to the left and right of the control area. When you click left (or down), you move backwards through the SELECT items. When you click right (or up) you advance forward through the SELECT items.
Everything else would function the same.
Has anyone seen anything like this? The best solution, in my mind, would be a jQuery widget that "acts on" a SELECT and modifies that select to work in a spinner format.
You would still be able to retrieve both option.VALUE and option.TEXT from the spinner control, just like with the HTML SELECT.
I have been hammering Google and I do not believe such a thing exists, but I want to poll to make sure.
Also, I do NOT want to take the time to develop one myself.
Thanks very much.
