The Programming Butler

hacking life with a servants heart


Thanks to Daniel for creating a nifty new jquery plugin for me! Quickselect takes select/option tags in html and turns them into an input box with live search, and can even use the quicksilver.js for more interesting search results.

I needed this for Suite, the software I’m writing to manage my company SabreTech and I could not for the life of me find a jquery plugin that did something nifty like this. I had found this autocomplete plugin, and this live search plugin (which was actually a rewrite of another plugin by a friend of mine, John Nunemaker )…

So I asked Dan to write this up for us yesterday, and this afternoon he found some time and put it together, and guess what, it works PERFECTLY!

Well, I hope others find this useful…
