This plugin makes it possible to have a fixed position element that is relative to it’s parent. A normal fixed positioned element would be "out of context" and is very difficult to use in the most common situations with fluid designs. This plugin solves that problem with as little code as I could possible get it so it will run in the most optimized way, while also allow you to customize it in many important ways which might suit you best.


JVFloat uses CSS3 Transform and Transitions to perform the animations by default. Browsers that doesn’t support those will simply doesn’t show anything when user typing on the input elements. to fix that, enable/uncomment the legacy rules on the default CSS file, and comment out the CSS3 rules.
