Adapt jQuery Selectbox plugin to add extra class to select list

Hi All,

I'm using a jQuery Selectbox plugin from the following location: http://www.bulgaria-web-developers.com/projects/javascript/selectbox/

It works fine except that I would like to be able to add a class to either the <a> link  or <li> that has been chosen by the user so when the dropdown is opened again, I can have styled that <li> to look like the active selection.

So when the user clicks on a list option, either the <a> or <li> get an additional class of 'selected' or whatever which is then removed when you click on another option.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Like most "free" plugins, there does not appear to be any support.  I suggest you try to contact the author, because I doubt anyone is going to try and modify the library for you.

You could try something like this. (the onOpen, and onClose you can remove if you want)


$("#selectlist").selectbox({
	onOpen: function (inst) {
		//console.log("open", inst);
	},
	onClose: function (inst) {
		//console.log("close", inst);
	},
	onChange: function (val, inst) {
		$(this).find("option").filter(":selected").addClass("selected");
	},
	effect: "slide"
});

Open in new window
