How to use

See in this section how to use Tokenize2 on your website.

To start, you have to include required jQuery and jQuery-UI librairies.

<script src="//"></script>

Tokenize2 was created for Bootstrap Framework, so it's highly recommended to include Bootstrap CSS file.

<link href="//" rel="stylesheet" />

Next just include the Tokenize2 CSS and Javascript files.

<script src="tokenize2.min.js"></script>
<link href="tokenize2.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Be sure that Tokenize2 CSS file is included after Bootstrap CSS file, because some Bootstrap classes are overrided by Tokenize2.

Finally add a <select> form control to your code and call the plugin.

<select class="tokenize-demo" multiple>
    <option value="Africa">Africa</option>
    <option value="Americas">Americas</option>
    <option value="Asia">Asia</option>
    <option value="Europe">Europe</option>
    <option value="Oceania">Oceania</option>

Attribute multiple is required

Please don't forget to add attribute multiple to your <select> control or Tokenize2 will not work properly.
