This is a jQuery plugin that can create select inputs that can be styled.

It takes a given select input that creates a separate div element that emulates select inputs using custom select style properties.

The original select input is hidden but its selected values are updated when the custom select input selected option is updated.

Form select inputs are very useful to let the users select options from a list but they are also limited in the way you can style their presentation.

This jQuery plugin provides an alternative solution that consists in recreating page elements that work like a select input, but can be styled in many ways.

It just copies the initial attributes and values of an existing select input that becomes hidden and synchronizes the selected options, so the form value submission works well as before.
