Today we’d like to share a little script with you that allows a click & hover selection of checkboxes or any other element. Mainly the idea comes from the common task that we do every day in our email app or elsewhere: checking checkboxes, one after the other by clicking on them. Sometimes you’d like to select more items more quickly so we thought it might be an interesting approach to click, hold and then simply move over all the items that should be selected. It’s quicker and easier to select multiple items like that.

Please note that this is for desktop only.

We’ve made two demos: in the first one we only want the checkboxes to be selectable, and in the second one we want it to be possible to hover over the whole item in order to select it.
