  • support for context menu
  • support for ajax

Quickstart

First of all, let's setup plugin initialization into html head section:

<!-- include jQuery and jQueryUI libraries -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.1/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css"/>

<!-- include plugin -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="minified/jquery.tree.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="minified/jquery.tree.min.css" />

<!-- initialize checkboxTree plugin -->
<script type="text/javascript">
    //<!--
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#tree').tree({
            /* specify here your options */
        });
    });
//-->
</script>

Now, we can build our tree into html body section:

<div id="tree">
    <ul>
        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1</span>
            <ul>
                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.1</span>
                    <ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.1.1</span>
                    </ul>
            </ul>
            <ul>
                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2</span>
                    <ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.1</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.2</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.3</span>
                            <ul>
                                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.3.1</span>
                                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.3.2</span>
                            </ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.4</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.5</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 1.2.6</span>
                    </ul>
            </ul>
        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2</span>
            <ul>
                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.1</span>
                    <ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.1.1</span>
                    </ul>
                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2</span>
                    <ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.1</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.2</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.3</span>
                            <ul>
                                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.3.1</span>
                                <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.3.2</span>
                            </ul>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.4</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.5</span>
                        <li><input type="checkbox"><span>Node 2.2.6</span>
                    </ul>
            </ul>
    </ul>
</div>
