Select2 jQuery widget for Foswiki

This extension adds support for the Select2 jQuery widget to Foswiki.

Select2 magically turns an existing select tag into a widget that supports type-ahead find, but it can do much more: selecting multiple values, remote data sources, infinite scrolling... you name it.

For more information about the widget and how to customize it, see its homepage.


Use %JQREQUIRE{"select2"}% to make use of Select2 on a wiki page. Add the jqSelect2 CSS class to a select tag to make it turn into a Select2 widget.



<select class='jqSelect2' data-placeholder='Select a burger' data-width='element'>
<option>Hamburger deluxe with gold plating</option>

If Select2 is enabled, you will see the result below:

No such plugin select2
