A jQuery plugin that gives users real time hints & progress updates as they complete forms


..:: Getting Started

Include the relevant files

Firstly include jQuery and the progression.css and progress.js files. Place these before </head> section

<link href='progression.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="progression.js"></script>
Create a form

You must give your form a unique ID. You then need to add a data attribute of data-progression to each element that needs to be a step in the form progression.

The helper text for the tooltip can be set by adding data-helper to the element. This is demonstrated below

<form id="myform">
        <label for="">Name</label> 
        <input data-progression="" type="text" data-helper="Help users through forms by prividing helpful hinters" name="name" value="" placeholder="" />

  ##### Initiate the plugin

Once you have created your form you will need to initiate the plugin.

At its most basic level you can initiate the plugin like:

$(document).ready(function ($) {



If you want to initiate the plugin with options then you can do so like:

        tooltipWidth: '200',
        tooltipPosition: 'right',
        tooltipOffset: '50',
        showProgressBar: true,
        showHelper: true,
        tooltipFontSize: '14',
        tooltipFontColor: 'fff',
        progressBarBackground: 'fff',
        progressBarColor: '6EA5E1',
        tooltipBackgroundColor: 'a2cbfa',
        tooltipPadding: '10',
        tooltipAnimate: true
