This plugin was extracted for a project I was doing with a friend of mine. We needed a way to have a suggestion in an input field, to get a user started faster. This plugin DOES NOT use fancy CSS3 transformations or HTML5 for anything, ensuring your IE customer will be able to see the text as well.


To use this plugin, add it to you javascript include in the section of you HTML page.

To add the script to an input field, simply do the following:


Specify options to the plugin!

You can add your own help text, by passing in a hash object.

$(‘input’).suggest({ text: ‘This is my custom help text’ });

The the given text is displayed to help the user make a choice.

Default options

By default a css class is added to the field the plugin is initialized on, if either no input is given or the help text is shown.
The css class is called blurry.

Change the CSS class

You can change the CSS class by adding the following to your hash:

$(‘input’).suggest({ cssClass: ‘custom_css_class’ });
