The scripts are written with consideration to robustness, ease of installation and configuration. Where applicable, the code can be used in multiple instances in the same document. No script requires any editing of its supplied code.
Conversely, whenever a satisfactory demonstration leads to a download of our code, it is imperative to us that it results in a successful installation on the intended website.
To this end we undertake to provide a reasonable level of email-based support to anyone having the basic text editing skills required both to install scripts, and to specify relative file paths.
While the less complex scripts are entirely free, for the rest in recognition of the time and effort taken developing and documenting the code and any support that may have been rendered, we expect a gratuity of the user's choice via PayPal. Our receipt of a gratuity in respect of any script, will be understood to mean that the sender has judged the code to be suitable for purpose. This condition is reiterated in the documentation of the relevant scripts. We do not suggest any amount and no transaction takes place.
Anyone unable to agree with the above principle is advised to seek an alternative code source.
Should any long term abuse of our code come to light, we reserve the right to remind users by any available means.

Cascaded Select Lists of any Depth
using Array-Based Data Storage.
Multiselect is a dependent dropdown controller that does not use a database. It is best suited for applications in which the option data will not need to be updated regularly.
The intuitive array storage system supports unlimited depth of menus.
Controls multiple groups of dynamic chained select boxes
- Supports multiple independent menu groups, with no limit to the number of <select>s in each.
- De-selected boxes can be hidden.
- Supported by an online WYSIWYG data and code generator, to have you up and running in the time it takes to type-in the option text!
- Isolates the developer from the potential hazards of manipulating source code.
- [Advanced Developers] You can enhance the user experience by executing external code whenever menus are populated, cleared and when a final selection is made.
For maximum versatility, option data can be retrieved from:
- Hard-coded XML data
- Separate XML File
- Dynamic database querying via built-in AJAX routines
- Any combination of the above.
The data generator features an intuitive option editor integrated into a working simulation of the script. As you enter options they become part of the simulation, allowing you to click them to specify the location of sub-options.
There is no easier way to build a complex dependent-dropdown system.

The often-requested div-scrolling buttons. Can be used on their own or complementary to any other of our div-scrolling utilities. Configurable for vertical, horizontal or diagonal scrolling by fixed amount or by percentage.
When a configured image is clicked, this utility reads the cursor position relative to the top left corner of the image, then passes the data to any other script via a user-supplied function.

Returns accurate data even when an image is contained within a scrolled div.
Displays full size captioned images triggered from disjointed rollovers of thumbnail images or links.
Supports multiple displays in the same document.
Configurable to select either by hover or click.
