A quick jQuery collection

A quick collection of a few jQuery plug-ins and snippets which I’ve found useful over the past couple of weeks.

jQuery listmenu plugin - allows you to easily convert a long, hard to navigate list into a compact, easily skimmable 'first-letter' based menuing system. Looks like a slick plug-in if you have the need for something like this.

jQuery Style ASP.NET Form Validators – useful styling additions to ASP.NET’s stock validator controls to give you more control over the styling of the warning/error messages. Comes with 2 versions – one with animation, and one without (my preference being the latter).

MakePositioned extension – position an element near another element using one of 4 different positioning locations.

A small snippet, but a useful one. Used to hide a div when “anywhere else” is clicked – the most useful part of it being the e.stopPropagation() call when the user clicks inside the shown div.

Readers might notice the last 2 links work well together – most recently I combined them to simulate the behaviour of a standard drop down list using a custom treeview control displayed in a div.
