jQuery Plugin - mfsNiceControls

mfsNiceControls is a jQuery base form plug-in. It allows you to create custom looking radio buttons and check boxes in your HTML form. In HTML we cannot use css for styling these controls like we can with other input fields. This plug-in uses a basic theme for all radio buttons and check boxes by default. The user can also override the default theme by selecting from other ones we have provided. This version only provides seven themes which are: default, red, green, blue, orange, black, windows.


  • No extra HTML code required for styling the radio buttons or check boxes.
  • No CSS is used. So no additional css file to include in the page.
  • Very light weight.


The plugin is free.









The plug-in is compatible with all modern browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Opera.


This plug-in depends on jQuery. so you will need jquery.js to make this plug-in work. We have included it in the zip.

How to use it?

  • Give proper and valid name and id to all check boxes and radio buttons.
  • Include jquery-1.3.2.js & mfsNiceControls.js javascript files.
  • Call the function mfsNiceControls() on document ready. By default it will take the default theme.

To apply custom themes to your radio buttons only use:

$(function() {

To apply custom themes to your check boxes only:

$(function() {

To apply custom themes to your radio buttons and check boxes:

$(function() {

To change the default theme to another predefined theme:

$(function() {
$('input[type=checkbox],input[type=radio]').mfsNiceControls({theme : 'orange'});


$(function() {
$('input[type=checkbox],input[type=radio]').mfsNiceControls({theme : 'black'});
