The form component is built as a jQuery plugin responsible for handling the state of input elements.

How to use

By passing an object as a parameter to the form function, you can define the event that will trigger the component’s action, as well as list the selectors attached to that event.

// accepted options
var options = {
  events: 'change',
  selectors: '.input, select, .select, .textarea'


Notice that the strings used in the example above are the default values.

With that, whenever a change event occurs in one of the selectors listed, the component will toggle the .active class, if needed.

How it works

The component constructor will loop through each selector found on the element and check if it has either a value or a placeholder, then add or remove the .active class on the .field element. If the selector does not have a .field as a parent, the verification will be skipped, and no classes will be added. After this initial setup, the verification process will be repeated according to the event listener registered.
