Future of NMultiSelect

Now that I have made a few releases of my jQuery plug-in, NMultiSelect, I have begun work on a future version of the plug-in, version 2.0.

At the moment that version has the following features, that the current (1.5.4) doesn’t:

The new features (at the moment) are:

  • Full jQuery 1.6+ compatibility (I like to move forward so this version will not be backward compatible with jQuery!)
  • NMultiSelect from <select>-tags (this is actually a quite cool solution, and doesn’t alter postbacks what so ever, so you can use it without altering your code-behind!).
  • Drag-n-Drop. (Who needs buttons anyway?).
  • Drop down. (Hide the big and ugly box away and minimize your layout.)
  • All NMultiSelect-boxes is found in their own <div>-tag now. (Prettier HTML).
  • Functions to remove all or single item from the lists. (Easier maintenance with AJAX).
  • Easier access to lost NMultiSelect-box reference using default jQuery selectors.
  • More methods to alter NMultiSelect-behavior.
  • Possibility to bind multiple event-handlers.
  • A lot of core updates and changes.
  • Auto loading of dependencies. All you need to get NMultiSelect is just the jQuery-file and NMultiSelect-file. The plug-in takes care of the rest.
  • A small graphical update. Just a little eye-candy.

If you have anything to add to this list, don’t be shy, just give ’em to me!

UPDATE:

I have made a few screen dumps of some of the new features, for you to see:

UPDATE 2:

I have published an early preview of the v2 of NMultiSelect.

Please note, this is not final, nor stable but I will try to fix as many bugs as possible within the next 1 or 2 weeks.

I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything for a long time, but I’m actually drowning in work so I’ve just been to damn busy. But I will make it up for you guys. I Promis!

You can see the preview here:

    I’d really like to implement your v2 in a WP plugin I’m developing, as the drag and drop and dropdown options are perfect for the layout and functionality I want. Is this still being developed?

  2. Hi,

    Sounds great! I’m currently busy with tons of projects at my day work atm. but I will see if I can have something for you within the next week or two.

    I’ve uploaded the current development version at:
    http://nmultiselect.ndesoft.dk/v2/nms.html

    It’s quite buggy at some of the features, and not optimized perfectly, but it’s a big rewrite! I will post here when I have a finished version ready.

    I’m glad to see people use it, I use it my self but when I get feedback from other users, it’s just great. Thanks Kevin!

    When you finish your plugin would you mind posting a link to it here? Would be awesome to see how people use it in their own work.

    As a fellow developer I also know how helpful it is to get user feedback. I haven’t used your script yet, but I’ve played with the v2 demos and it looks very promising. There seem to be a lot of similar jQuery functions out there but yours seems the best match for my project – which if implemented I’ll gladly refer you to!

    I also understand the demands of the “day job” so don’t feel rushed on my account. I’ll look forward to future updates.
