<script src="jqfields/jquery.js"></script>

<!-- jquery-ui is necessary only if you want to use custom scroll-bar for select drop-down lists -->
<script src="jqfields/jquery-ui.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<link href="jqfields/fancyfields.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script src="jqfields/fancyfields-1.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

"fancyfields.css" is the basic theme. There are also other predefined themes in the "jqfields" folder: "fancyfields2.css", "fancyfields_blue.css", "fancyfields_green.css" ... If you want one of these themes, just replace the "fancyfields.css" whit the name of that file.

3. Then, add the following code to the document ready.
- Every form element in a div with ID "myForm" will be transformed to a styled form element.
If you want to apply Fancy-Fields only to a specified form element, for example to a <select> element, add an ID to that <select> tag and write this code:
You can also create dinamycally select drop-down lists, by using this formula:
// defines an  array of arrays with 2 ["text","value"] values or 1 ["text and value"] value
var listOptions = [["select","0"],["option1", "val1"],["option2", "val2"], ["optionval3"]];

// or change the options of a Select list
