Recently I’ve been working with a jQuery dropdown plugin called ddSlick Remablized, which is a plugin that allows you to have customised dropdowns on your page. However, after implementing it in one of my projects, I’ve discovered a bug in Internet Explorer 7, which looks something like this:
It’s common knowledge that when working in a group we always break the tasks down into smaller portions so as not to choke anyone with too much work. It’s also common for most people working in groups to try and get things done in parallel.
I work mostly with front-end stuff, while my team-mates work on the back-end stuff. Once we get our assigned tasks done, we get together and spend some time getting everyone’s code to play nice with each other.
But sometimes, due to unforeseen problems, the tasks don’t get done in time, and one side will need to wait for the other side to get their code up and running. I have, on occasions, had to wait for the back-end code to be up and running before I can test anything, and obviously there are times when it’s the opposite.
I work with a lot of Ajax stuff, and this means sending data to web services, getting a response, and reacting based on said response. Pretty standard stuff.
I’ve recently released the first version of my jQuery Cascading Dropdown plugin. You can find it on my Github page located here:
jQuery Cascading Dropdown
The plugin allows you to implement a cascading dropdown using multiple select boxes in which one select box depends on the input from one or more separate select boxes. Once one or all (depending on the configuration) required select boxes contain a value, it will trigger an event that will fire off the dependant select box so it will fetch its own list.
It’s free to use, so feel free to download it, use it, even abuse it, as long as you keep the copyright info intact.
