[Feature] Keeping classes of the options #30

stof opened this Issue · 6 comments

I would like being able to add a class on some <option> items of the HTML select list and have them added to the <li> item of the list created by the plugin when using it to enhance the form as I need to be able to style some options in a specific way.

None of the plugin I found to enhance select lists support it currently. Your plugin seems really good and I consider using it so I would love if it supports this feature.


I think this may be viable, but will need to test performance when looping over 100's of options before committing.


you could make it configurable (at least for the jQuery plugin where it is common to provide options when using them. I never used prototype to know how it works). This way, it could be activated only when the user need it to have better performances.


I was unable to detect a noticeable performance hit on a select with thousands of options. As of 7dd2908, Chosen retains the original form element's options.

How about inheriting a select's class and title attributes? e.g. for adding a tooltip to a select.


@mdi That is covered in a different feature request (#209)
