The Multiple Select plugin displays data in a tabular format, via data attributes or JavaScript.

Via data attributes

Activate Multiple Select without writing JavaScript. Set data-toggle="select" on a normal select.

<select multiple="multiple" data-toggle="select">
    <option value="1">January</option>
    <option value="12">December</option>

We can also use remote url data by setting data-url="data1.json" on a normal select.

<select data-toggle="select" data-url="data1.json"></select>

Via JavaScript

Call a multiple select with id select with JavaScript.

<select id="select" multiple="multiple">
    <option value="1">January</option>
    <option value="12">December</option>

We can also use remote url data by setting url: 'data1.json'.

<select id="select" multiple="multiple"></select>
    url: 'data1.json'
