The Fabrik Dropdown (and all other SELECT) plugins present results as a standard SELECT html format. What I am looking for is a quick way of replacing this with a jQuery CHOSEN field to improve the usability of dropdowns.

  • Welcome to JSE, Hugh. Please take our tour and read How to Ask. Your requirements seem clear enough, have you taken any steps to resolve this yourself? It give a question clearer context and often makes a question easier for volunteers to answer if you show how far you've gone on your own with researching and coding. Apr 23, 2021 at 14:20

It turns out this functionality is built into Fabrik, but has to be manually enabled, to do so: Open Fabrik Component Options in Administrator In the Forms Tab: Set Enhanced Dropdowns either to per element or to yes (if set to per element, then this also needs to be enabled on a per element basis in the element)

Note this function is marked as WIP (Work in Progress) in Fabrik 3.9.2

  • It's a WIP, but for me it has worked well so far.
