jQuery Mobile - Basic Flip Switch


The flip switch can be created by adding data-role = "slider" attribute in your <select>.


Following example demonstrates the use of basic flip switch in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Basic Slider Flip Switch</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

         <label for = "flip">Flip Toggle Switch:</label>
         <select id = "flip" name = "flip" data-role = "slider">
            <option value = "off">Off</option>
            <option value = "on">On</option>
