Tandem Select jQuery Plugin

A standard HTML multiple Select menu allows the user to select multiple options using Command-Click. But when the list of options is long, requiring the user to scroll, it becomes cumbersome and prone to errors.

An effective solution is to use two select menus in tandem, with buttons allowing options to be swapped between the two.

I'm pleased to announce the release of a new jQuery plugin that makes tandem selects simple to set up and easy to customize.

Tandem Select consists of a JavaScript function that leverages the jQuery library, a CSS file and template HTML code.

More information and live demos can be found on the Project Page and the software can be downloaded from the GitHub repository.
