czCombobox jQuery plugin


czCombobox is a jQuery plugin that allows you to turn default browser dropdown list into much more attractive.

The plugin is usable not only for end users, but also for developers. czCombobox has a lot of configuration options so you can modify its behaviour and appearance. From this version the core CSS file is separated from the CSS that provides drop download list appearance, and now you are able to easily create new skins for the plugin.


Please view demo page to see the possibilities of czCombobox.


Please follow these instructions to install czCombobox:

Download and unpack the archive. Include jQuery and plugin files to your web page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.czCombobox.js"></script>

Include core or your skin CSS files to your page:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="images/style.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="images/skin_name.css" />

Done! Now make your dropdown lists look and behave sexy!

    className : 'light-black',
    listMargin: 5,
    changeCallback: function() {
        alert('Has Changed')

Usage and configuration options

czCombobox has a number of configuration options that are passed to the plugin in the form of JavaScript object. The full list of options is:

className String, Default: null
The class name of dropdown list wrap.
initCallback Funtion, Default: null
function that is called at the end of constrictor.

In this version I have separated core CSS and presentational CSS, so now it's possible to create new skins for czCombobox. The download package contains one example skin. Feel free to create your own based on it.
