Sexy Combo is a jQuery plugin that allows you to turn default browser selectboxes into much more attractive and usable comboboxes.




The QuickSelect plugin allows you to create a text input with a list of specified options, and as you type, those options show up in a list below the input box. You can choose to have it top result into the input box as you type, or select an option using the arrow keys.



While there are many similar plug-ins, the key differentiator with the Linkselect plug-in is that is designed to fit in limited real estate.

Image Combo Box

if you tired with your old fashion selectbox try this one. Image combo box. You can add an icon with each option. It works with your existing "select" element.




if you needed to develop a unique UI control that would allow users to select from a complex hierarchical tree of options, then this plugin is for you.

This search box reveals a drop down menu after the user clicks into the input field. The menu is meant to act as a filter with several checkbox options that allow the user to select specific categories for his search.
