  • Plugin is simple to use and limited to IE-8 only, I would like to use this plugin in IE-10 and IE-11, upon mouse over in IE-11 gray color displayed mouse mouse sync is not with selected blue color and on mouse over only gray color should be displayed no blue color as selected. Is there any support on IE-10 onwards Please let me know? I am ready to purchase if it is reasonable

  • There are two issues that I've found so far. If you tab select the dropdown menu and use the arrows to select an item, the default text does not disappear, the menu item text and the default text get jumbled together. Also, on webkit browsers the focus becomes misaligned with the mouse on items farther down the list.

  • It is good plugin with nice features. I usedit with IE7, there are two issues: 1) If I have a control next to the dropdown, then the control will be moved to the next line. I have fixed it by making the wrapper div float to the left. 2) When I use it with multiple dropdown and assign z-index, the zIndex option does not prevent the dropdown overlay each other. I took a look at the source code and realized that the zIndex option does not define the wrapper div's z-index.

  • Works with jquery 1.64, not 2.0.2

  • I can't seem to get this working properly with the latest version of chrome. After applying the searchable class, everything appears to be working great but on submission of the form, the dropdowns are missing.
