Fancy Opts jQuery Plugin – Custom Radio and Checkbox Inputs

16 Mar

I was in need of a quality jQuery plugin that would allow me to customize radio buttons and checkboxes. After a bit of googling, I was only able to find offerings that weren’t fully featured. Specifically, they lacked graceful degradation, required custom HTML, and/or just functioned far too much unlike a native input.

As is usually the case, I couldn’t find what I needed so I decided to create it myself, and so the Fancy Opts plugin was born. It allows you to simply create flexible and completely unique radio button and checkbox inputs.

I compiled the info, download, and demo info here: Fancy Opts jQuery Plugin. It’s really simple to use, degrades gracefully, and acts very much like a traditional input.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or problems with the plugin, please feel free to let me know!

    Unfortunately the radio select buttons don’t work in Chrome 10.0.648.151 on OS X. But thanks for the contribution :)

    Thanks for reporting, patcon! A small Chrome bug was accidentally introduced just before I unveiled v0.1, but is now corrected in v0.2.
