I would love to do some testing with the multi-select that several folks suggested that is on endless.com. ( http://www.endless.com/landingpage/brandwomen/ref=home_sb_wm?node=242169011&landingType=department )

I searched for awhile for a code snippet/plugin to use that has the same functionality without any luck. Before I break open the jQuery documentation and start from scratch has anyone seen of have an example I can use for the web?

It is pretty rare these days that someone hasn't already created it and posted it for community enhancement.

Hi Shannon,

While I don't remember coming across a code snippet or plugin that
does exactly what you're looking for, you might find the DataTables
plugin (http://plugins.jquery.com/project/DataTables) helpful for the
"filter-as-you-type" functionality.

For what it's worth, the whole thing should be pretty trivial to
build from scratch if you're at all familiar with JQuery.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

I forgot to note that, as the name implies, the DataTables plugin is
meant for manipulation of tables, but still might help you for the
live filter aspect. (Although I'm sure there is probably a more
suitable filter plugin out there)

You know, I was thinking about my responses to your inquiry and I
don't really know if the above-mentioned plugin will be all that
helpful.

Regarding the filtering, it would probably be easier to just iterate
through all the list items and show() or hide() the ones you need to
(or something similar). The rest of the functionality seems pretty
straightforward.

Anyway, sorry for all the (probably not-so-helpful) replies. I'd be
curious to find out about any interesting results you come across in
your testing, and see your working prototype if you'd be willing to
share :)
